    Saying Delaware needs to restructure the state treasurer’s office, Democrat Chip Flowers of Middletown filed papers today with the Department of Elections.  He says he’s running for the office in order to give the state treasurer a stronger role in Delaware’s economic development.

    In a letter to State Democratic leaders, Flowers says “Unlike our sister states, Delaware has not structured the state treasurer’s office to help our state master the economic challenges of the 21st century global economy and assist other state offices and agencies in bringing secure, high-paying jobs to Delaware.”

    Flowers is the founder of the Flowers Counsel Group, which specializes in advising businesses in major purchases, with offices in Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington, D.C. He has appeared many times on WHYY as a Democratic analyst.
