Upcoming meetings include Feb. 21 in Hockessin, Feb. 22 in Dover, March 1 in Seaford and April 5 in Newark

Gov. John Carney is holding a series of community meetings to hear ideas Delaware citizens may have about how to address the state budget.

In Dover, the next meeting will be at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the Dover City Hall council chambers.

The session is sponsored by the Downtown Dover Partnership. Sen. Brian Bushweller, D-Dover, is scheduled to take part as well.

Carney’s office has scheduled six meetings throughout the state, including a televised town hall event. The first took place Jan. 30 in Wilmington.

“Attendees can expect Gov. Carney to offer a brief overview of the budget challenges we face as a state, and to listen to questions, concerns and ideas from those in attendance,” said Communications Director Jonathan Starkey.

“The governor has committed to working toward a sustainable, long-term solution on the budget. As a part of that process, he is meeting with Delawareans across the state – at events hosted by legislators – to hear their ideas.”
