Gov. John Carney and Delaware’s congressional delegation, Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons, Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki and New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer issued a statement on Amazon’s second North American headquarters.
"Of course we are disappointed that Amazon has not chosen Delaware as a finalist location for its second North American headquarters. But we used this opportunity to showcase all the options in Delaware not just for Amazon, but for any business looking for a location to set down roots and grow. In that respect, Delaware's effort — which brought together leaders in the public and private sectors to promote our great state — was a resounding success. Going forward, we'll do everything we can to support Philadelphia's application, to help bring Amazon to our region,” the legislators said.
