FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – John Delaney releases the following statement:

“As the founder and former CEO of two New York Stock Exchange companies, I firmly believe that the skills developed as a solutions-oriented, pragmatic business leader are very valuable in public service. But, these skills must be balanced with real experience in public service – particularly for someone considering the Presidency. It is through real public service that you demonstrate the humility to ‘roll up your sleeves’ to make a difference.

“We need a President that understands the legislative process, understands how to work with others with differing ideological perspectives, and fully appreciates the amount of change you can make as a leader in government.  I have always been a proud Democrat and would be honored to lead a renewed Democratic party that can be pragmatic and solutions-oriented, build a more just and prosperous country for all Americans, and, in the process, restore a sense of common purpose to our terribly divided country.”
