Born in Wilmington and raised in Claymont, Governor John Carney has been working for the Delaware people for more than 30 years.

Working with Delawareans across the state, and with members of the General Assembly, he has made progress on each of those priorities. John has directed new resources to high-needs schools, partnered with the private sector to drive new job creation, and taken steps to lower healthcare costs for Delaware families, businesses, and taxpayers.
