Michael McNesby Bill

I was honored to join Governor John Carney for the signing of the Michael McNesby Act. This critical piece of legislation will help raise hourly wages for direct support professionals who help families and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities every day.

Increasing wages for these dedicated workers will improve recruitment and retention of these positions, and reduce staff turnover and vacancies.

Michael McNesby was beloved by everyone he touched in his life, and it’s fitting that this important bill was named in his honor and signed at Elwyn Delaware, his long-time place of employment. I am privileged to have known Michael, and his family’s advocacy was instrumental in building support for this bill.

Port of Wilmington

With the prospect of thousands of jobs over the next decade and up to $600 million in new investment, this Port of Wilmington expansion agreement is a game-changer for Delaware.

We have the potential to create thousands of good-paying jobs and careers for Delawareans, and I thank Governor John Carney, Diamond State Port Corporation and GT USA Wilmington, LLC for finalizing the agreement today. This will have an important impact on our economy. For more information, click here: https://bit.ly/2D6FsCE
