Delaware Governor to Pitch Job Growth at National Governor's Association

Feb 20, 2012


    WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware Gov. Jack Markell says he plans to talk to fellow governors next week about the best ways to create jobs.

     The Democrat is vice chair of the National Governors' Association, which holds its annual winter meeting in Washington beginning on Friday.

     The association's focus at the weekend meeting will be "Growing State Economies." NGA Chair and Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman's initiative is intended to give state leaders better ways to assess and grow their state economies.

     Markell said on his weekly radio address on WDEL-AM that he

plans to talk about the products and services offered by Delaware companies, with hopes of attracting out-of-state business.

     He says the most important thing governors can do for the economy is to keep public schools strong.
