Sen. Carper’s Statement on Dupont Vote Results

WILMINGTON, Del. – Today, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) released the following statement on the news that DuPont shareholders elected all 12 DuPont nominees at its annual shareholders meeting this morning:

“DuPont has been a Delaware company for centuries, and today’s news is a win for its leadership team, the people who work there, and for the First State. The shareholders have endorsed Ellen Kullman’s vision, and deservedly so. Under her leadership, DuPont has focused on a long-term growth strategy and today’s vote is a strong show of confidence that shareholders have endorsed that approach as a sound strategy. It’s been a good strategy for Delaware for more than 200 years and will hopefully be for many, many more years to come.”
