Welcome to Kent County, Delaware
Kent County is located in the heart of Delaware, a county where I have lived and worked for many years. This is an exciting time to live, work or go to school in our wonderful county. Despite the sluggish U.S. economy, Kent County continues to welcome new residents, businesses and tourists every year. We're blessed with an educated and ambitious workforce that drives innovation and investment in our local businesses. We are also proud to be served by elected officials at the county and state level that listen to businesses' concerns. County leaders work aggressively to attract new industry to the area while also ensuring that established businesses continue to thrive.
As Chairman of the Kent Economic Partnership, I am tasked with leading a non-profit organization to help support and expand business interests throughout central Delaware. The Partnership is supported by a dynamic team of business leaders from all over Kent County, whose mission is to create a business environment supportive of the entrepreneurial spirit -- benefitting businesses and residents alike. We've experienced several important victories recently. The Firefly Music Festival has become a nationally-recognized event, attracting 80,000 visitors to our county each year. Downtown Smyrna is also undergoing a renaissance, with many new businesses slated to open in 2015. The Kent Economic Partnership's mission is to create a business climate in our county where innovation is celebrated and businesses are able to expand. We will continue to aggressively support projects that create new jobs, improve the quality of life for county residents and provide an engine for economic growth.
