Shine your Brightest
The 2018 Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business awards are now accepting applications! We hosted an application workshop this week to help prospective stars write their best submissions. Key takeaway advice from Selection Committee members and past winners?
  • Tell a compelling story about your business
  • Illustrate your successes with data and testimonials
  • Don't be afraid to share the challenges your organization has faced
  • Try again - use feedback from the committee to resubmit an even stronger application next year
Update from Dover
With the budget, bond, and grant-in-aid bills being completed and/or passed prior to June 30 with bipartisan support, the final night was expected to be noncontroversial. However, the contentiousness and rancor that permeated 2017 returned, leaving members, staff, lobbyists, and the general public in attendance with another long last day of session, ending at 8:30 a.m. on July 1.

From the Mayor's Office
by Mayor Purzycki

As we move through the second year of a new City Administration, the state of our city is good and getting better. There’s much to be optimistic about. Our economy is solid. There are 1,000 rental units under construction and three hotels that are getting started. While some traditional employers are contracting in size, smaller ones are growing and see Wilmington as a place to build their businesses.
