New Castle County is an extraordinary county. It can be the commercial hub of the region and an ideal location to start and grow small and large businesses. In this era of innovation, quality, good paying jobs should be plentiful. But it takes leadership. And it requires a new direction.

There are many ways out of our current job rut, and we will pursue them aggressively. But at the heart of all of our initiatives is that same spirit of innovation that E.I. duPont brought to the banks of the Brandywine River in 1802. Whether at the Port of Wilmington or at Delaware Technology Park, at the Horn Center for Entrepreneurship, Middletown Business Incubator or the Mill, the solutions to our most pressing economic problems sit right here in front of us.
