Gov. Markell honors public servants in weekly message

Delaware Public Media

Gov. Jack Markell used his weekly message this week to thank the state’s many public servants.


"These individuals are often unsung heroes – doing the work that keeps our state running.  Some, including correctional officers, police officers, firefighters and first responders, and members of the National Guard, put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe. Others teach and inspire future generations,” Markell said.


During the past week, the governor recognized more than 50 state employees for demonstrating “extraordinary commitment to the state” in the past year.

Markell also spoke at the Delaware State Police Wreath Laying Ceremony this past Wednesday, where he honored 23 state troopers killed in the line of duty since 1923.
