Gov. John Carney issued a statement Jan. 24 on the Delaware Senate’s confirmation of Cerron Cade to serve as secretary of the Delaware Department of Labor.

Carney nominated Cade to the position earlier in January.

“Cerron has the knowledge and experience necessary to take on this important role, and I want to thank members of the Delaware Senate for their vote of confidence in confirming his nomination. The Department of Labor’s work connecting Delawareans with job training and workforce development programs has never been more important. Cerron understands the needs of Delaware businesses from his time at the Delaware’s Small Business Division and, before that, at the Delaware Economic Development Office. Cerron has a proven ability to lead, and I’m confident that his experience will serve Delaware taxpayers and workers well,” said Carney.
