As he prepares to take office in January, Governor-elect John Carney is offering Delaware residents a chance to have a say in the transition process.

Do you want to work for Delaware’s next governor? Have an idea that you think the Carney administration should implement? There’s a website for that.

Carney’s team has launched the website at to provide information to residents and to get input from Delawareans. “In the coming weeks, we will bring together a diverse group of Delawareans who have new, exciting and creative ideas for moving our state forward,” Carney said in a statement. “We want to hear from you.”

In addition to providing the latest information on the transition effort, the website also has links to the state’s FOIA request forms and has a place to submit resumes for the Carney administration.

As part of the transition, Carney announced last week that his long time aide Doug Gramiak will serve as his chief of staff. “He brings both the political and policy skills we need,” Carney said. “He’ll be a real asset in working with the legislature as we move quickly to address our state’s budget challenges.”

Gramiak worked as Carney’s chief of staff while he was Lieutenant Governor from 2001 to 2009. He worked as Carney’s state director in his congressional office from 2011 to 2014. He currently works at Young Conaway Public Strategies.

Carney also announced Sheila Grant as his deputy chief of staff. Grant is Carney’s current chief of staff in his Washington, D.C. congressional office.
