As governor, I'm spending my time focused in three areas: creating jobs, reducing the expense of government and schools.
So, for me the town hall meetings are really an opportunity to engage in two-way dialogue with people, and they've been very helpful.

Delaware is the only state east of the Rockies that is allowed under federal law to offer sports betting.
The number of business leaders who asked me to lower their taxes can be counted on one hand.
My focus on the budget, though, has played second fiddle to what I believe is even more important - creating jobs.
But I'm a big believer that government does not have a monopoly on good ideas.
My own experience, though, as a business executive and as a governor, tells me that businesses are interested in a lot more than a low tax rate when they decide where to locate.
