Governor Carney established the Government Efficiency and Accountability Review Board (GEAR) to develop recommendations for increasing efficiency and effectiveness across State government, improving the strategic planning process, improving the use of metrics in resource allocation decisions and developing continuous improvement practices.
Governor Carney took office on January 17, 2017 focused on making Delaware’s economy more competitive, preparing Delaware’s children to succeed, and building a long-term, sustainable financial plan. Working with Delawareans across the state, and with members of the General Assembly, he has delivered on each of those priorities.
Governor John Carney wrapped up the 2019 legislative session by signing an $863 million capital budget, which will fund new school construction, fix roads and bridges, keep our commitment to funding open space and farmland preservation statewide, invest in new drinking water infrastructure, and provide new funding for Delaware’s colleges and universities. Working with the General Assembly, Governor Carney made progress this legislative session on the priority items laid out in his 2019 State of the State Address.
