Gov. Markell wants your input 21 November, 2008

Posted by David Anderson in Uncategorized.

Carla and I wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving next week. Even though we are facing significant challenges as a state and a nation, we have a lot to be thankful for.

In addition to gettting ready for the upcoming holidays, my team and I have been very busy. It may seem like a long way off, but the inauguration on Jan. 20 will be here quickly and there is a lot of work to do.

Earlier this week I announced that Matt Denn and I will be sworn in at 12:01 a.m. on the 20th in the University of Delaware’s Mitchell Hall. It will be a late night, but Matt and I did not want to conflict with the historic Obama-Biden inaugural ceremonies. Our ceremony on the 20th will be brief. The traditional inaugural ceremonies and our inaugural speeches will take place the following day in Dover, beginning at 11 a.m. in front of Legislative Hall.

My transition team is also hard at work. I recently announced a talented team of Delawareans to a group of lead committees that are focused on specific issues. Their ideas about the innovative ways we can meet the challenges facing our state will be critical in helping me and my administration get to work from Day 1. We are facing sobering economic times, but this is a situation that also presents a great opportunity for us to be creative and make good decisions for Delaware’s future. I am especially interested in ways to make state government more effective and efficient. If you have an idea, please send it to us by visiting our transition website at:
