DOVER – In his weekly message, Governor Jack Markell talks about the young men and women who will head to our state capitol in the coming week as part of Boys and Girls State.

“Each year, those of us blessed with the chance to serve, gain so much from these students’ enthusiasm and optimism – their unshakeable belief that what draws them together as students is so much stronger than the differences that emerge from their debates,” said Governor Jack Markell.  ”The unity evident each year from the Boys and Girls State participants and the brave veterans from the American Legion who support them – the clarity of their purpose and the civility they show in their own debates – it reminds us just how much stronger we are, when we work together, to keep Delaware, moving forward.”

At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
