Governor Markell spoke of his focus on growing the economy, creating jobs, strengthening schools and protecting taxpayers. When he took office in 2009, he inherited a record budget shortfall, rapidly rising unemployment, and a stagnant economy. Since then, he has worked to open shuttered manufacturing facilities, won President Obama’s “Race to the Top” competition for progress in public school reform, and signed new laws to drive improvements in the economy, environment, and education.

Scenes from April 11 th Networking Event

Delaware Department of Transportation Secretary Shailen Bhatt was a big hit at the CIRCMonthly Membership Luncheon in April, where 92 attendees came out to hear him speak at the Clarion Belle Hotel in New Castle. They enjoyed some great networking and a delicious buffet. Secretary Bhatt, whose mother was visiting from India and attended the luncheon, humorously quipped that it was “Take Your Child to Work Day” ... and his mother did just that... brought him with her to our meeting.
