Message from the President
A recent study by Fidelity Investments about retirement accounts disclosed several interesting data points: 401(k), 403(b) and IRA balances were, on average, down at the end of last year. That will come as no real surprise to those who follow markets closely. However, on the “good news” side of things, loans against 401(k) plans dropped to a ten-year low. 

Legislative Priority
This week the JFC continued to hold meetings hearing budget requests from state agencies. I attended the Departments of Insurance, Labor, and Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) hearings, and each secretary gave a good overview of what their offices are doing and plans for next year.

Journalism isn't Dead
It’s common knowledge that print media is declining, more
rapidly now than ever before. The Washington Post recently cited that weekday print circulation went from 60 million in 1994 to 35 million in 2018... With that negative commentary out of the way, we look to Mike Feeley, executive editor of Delaware’s largest
print and digital news source, The News Journal and DelawareOnline.
