EMPOWERING DELAWARE STUDENTS

Despite having the fourth-highest per capita spending per student, Delaware ranks second to last in quality of education. For too long, Dover has thrown money at the problems without addressing the root causes, forcing an undue burden on taxpayers, teachers, parents, and students.

PROMOTING GOOD GOVERNANCE

For 32 years, Dover has put its own self-interest over the interests of hardworking Delawareans. Now, with Delaware facing a growing deficit, it is going to take a proven executive to make necessary cuts and get Delaware’s economy back on track.

The status quo in Delaware has been throwing more money at the problems instead of addressing their root causes. As Governor, Mike will promote good governance and responsible spending by holding lawmakers and government agencies accountable for their spending.
