In his weekly message Sept. 17, Governor Jack Markell asked Delawareans for their ideas, advice and constructive feedback for improving state government.

Delawareans can submit their ideas via the newly updated "www.ideas.delaware.gov" website.

“In town halls and community forums we held across the state, so many people offered great ideas on how to make our state government more efficient and effective,” said Markell. “Many of those suggestions became solutions – from selling a state plane, to slashing the size of our state fleet, to replacing more forms and more paperwork with online only options to reducing the size and cost of state real estate. Better jobs, stronger schools and more cost effective government are just some of the areas where Delaware can move forward even faster. And ideas.delaware.gov is one of the places to make your thoughts heard.”

"Ideas like the Business Finders’ Fee, a program that rewards people who bring new jobs to the state, can make a real difference in moving Delaware forward," Markell said.

The ideas.delaware.gov website is a continued effort to ensure Delawareans have a vehicle to submit their thoughts and ideas. The Governor’s Office will consider each idea.
