Hard economic times call for a leader unafraid to make bold changes, and I believe Jack Markell has shown that he can run a large agency with creative and practical ideas.
Jack has consistently implemented practical programs for financial education, such as the Delaware Money School. Jack is committed to spending state funds efficiently. He recently released a plan to improve government efficiency which will reduce spending and streamline out of date operations. Jack's plan cuts state spending with Strategic Sourcing, a program he successfully used in the private sector and as state treasurer to cut millions of dollars of wasteful spending by bulk purchasing. Although Jack's budget plan focuses on the immediate needs, he has also devised a five year plan for the future.
He has also met with numerous small business owners and employers on how he will use his position as governor to ensure all businesses in Delaware and entrepreneurs have the resources they need to grow.
Jack will make a great governor because he understands what it takes to create a strong economic climate in Delaware capable of attracting and retaining new businesses.
