To the Editor:
I am proud that I am supporting Jack Markell because he is the only Democrat running for Governor who will take Delaware in a new direction and deliver the change Delaware desperately needs.
Delaware will not remain a great state if we do not tackle the serious issues facing our state -- more small steps, task forces and commissions just won't cut it. Jack has proposed bold, Democratic solutions to health care, the economy, education and the environment. In fact, Jack is the only Democratic candidate for governor with a plan to provide affordable, high-quality health insurance to every Delawarean, right away.
Jack has a distinguished track record of helping people and getting things done as State Treasurer. He helped thousands of low-income Delawareans save millions of dollars through the Earned Income Tax Credit, and his Delaware Money School helped thousands of Delawareans take control of their financial lives. He has made a real difference in the lives of real people.
Delaware can do better, our future depends on it. That's why I am voting for Jack Markell in the Sept. 9 Democratic primary.
Mr. Leroy Hitchens
