“From the first day I was entrusted with Riverside, one of Wilmington’s most beloved communities, Senator Coons has stood by us with unwavering support. When we have a difficult time making a decision at The WRK Group, the deciding factor is always what is best for the community, and Senator Coons embodies those same values,” said CEO Herring. “I have seen him work across the aisle, and in partnership with Senator Tom Carper and Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester, to do what is best for our communities in Delaware and across our country. For this, I am honored to be his guest for the address and partner in this work.”
