Delawareans, as well as the entire country, have felt the effects of the current economic climate. While DC insiders argue over the fundamental causes, Chris Coons wants to focus on the millions of Americans who have suffered from the crisis.
As New Castle County Executive, Chris worked to attract new businesses and retain existing ones through marketing and outreach. The Office of Redevelopment continues to assist local and national companies with government regulations and the permitting process to attract new innovative businesses to Delaware.
Chris also believes it is important to directly help those who have suffered most in this crisis by increasing aid to the unemployed and expanding training programs to help those transitioning through careers.
He will continue to strengthen America's economy through strategic long-term investments in infrastructure, training and workforce development. Chris will use his position in the Senate to fight for trade agreements that contain good labor and environmental standards that will help to create new American jobs, not ship them overseas.
