DOVER, Del., May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware confirms that Delaware residents are concerned about the negative impact of the forced sale of a privately-held company. This week, the organization dropped mailers to the Elections and Government Affairs Committee's districts depicting the sale of TransPerfect by Delaware's Court of Chancery. Residents responded with daily emails and calls to their respective senators with a message of concern over the court's unprecedented decision.
CPBD is asking the Elections and Government Affairs Committee to bring the TransPerfect bill, SB53, to a full senate vote. The mail piece is a part of a larger campaign that included TV, digital, print and radio ads.
"We know that residents are worried about people losing their jobs, the impact that has on Delaware's economy, and the message this case sends to prospective businesses," said Chris Coffey, Campaign Manager for CPBD. "We have provided residents the opportunity to make their voices heard, and they have responded with tremendous support for SB53."
The campaign continues its aggressive educational efforts leading up to the Elections and Government Affairs Committee hearing on May 10th, where the organization is hopeful that senators of the committee will address the concerns of residents and pass the bill through to the senate floor.
"SB53 is an important bill for Delaware's economy," said Senator Colin Bonini, sponsor of Senate Bill 53. "As lawmakers, we should be creating a stable environment for businesses to prosper and bring jobs to hard-working Delaware residents."
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware is a group made up of more than 2,200 members including employees of the global translation services company TransPerfect, as well as concerned Delaware residents, business executives and others. They formed in April of 2016 to focus on raising awareness with Delaware residents, elected officials, and other stakeholders about the issue.
