Did Governor Carney Actually Heed My Advice?

For most of this year, I’ve been beating up Delaware Governor John Carney over the non-public Family Services Cabinet Council.  My beef has been that the meetings for this group are behind closed doors.  Nobody knows what goes on in these meetings.  That changes on Monday, November 13th.  Carney is allowing the Council to have a public presentation at Del-Tech’s Wilmington campus at 300 N. Orange St. in downtown Wilmington from 6:00 to 7:30pm.

Governor John Carney will host a discussion with the Family Services Cabinet Council at Delaware Technical Community College in Wilmington.

The agenda will include presentations on data-sharing efforts among state agencies in Wilmington, state service coordination for low-income families, and a planned dual generation center to improve the delivery of job-related services, and services for Wilmington children.

The event is an opportunity for stakeholders and members of the public to provide feedback and ideas for improving the delivery of state services in Wilmington.

This is the kind of open transparency I’ve been begging for.  While it is not a solution to my issues with this Council, it opens the door to what they do.  Thank you Governor Carney.  I’m not sure if my complaining had anything to do with this, but I do thank you for this opportunity.  Was this why the Family Services Cabinet Council met twice last week, on October 30th and November 1st?
