STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, transportation, whether it is taking us to our jobs or bringing us goods and services, plays a most important role in all of our lives; and
WHEREAS, in Delaware, we are fortunate to have a variety of forms of transportation, including air, water, bus, rail, and highways; each of these modes has made a vital contribution to improving our way of life and increasing our prosperity; and
WHEREAS, we must be conscious of the benefits that we derive from transportation but we must also be conscious of the potential for detracting from our environment; and
WHEREAS, the future transportation improvements for the state, whether they be airports, highways, or mass transit, must be carefully planned and the environmental impact must be carefully evaluated; and
WHEREAS, in our efforts to improve all aspects of our transportation system we will need the public's energy and understanding;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sherman W. Tribbitt, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of May 13 -19, 1973, as
in Delaware and urge all Delawareans to participate in observances of the week and to consider how our important transportation system can be enhanced to serve us in the future.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, SHERMAN W. TRIBBITT, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this 4th day of May
(GREAT SEAL) in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and seventy-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-seventh.
SHERMAN W. TRIBBITT, Governor
