In 2010, Mr. Flowers became the first African-American elected to a statewide office in Delaware. As State Treasurer, Mr. Flowers made over $55 million for the State of Delaware while restructuring, managing and protecting the state’s $2 billion investment portfolio in a difficult economic climate. During his four year term in office, Mr. Flowers established a relationship among his fellow state treasurers and the White House and proposed bold ideas (including creating a state stock index, economic index and economic early warning system), while fostering important economic and financial policy debates. By seeking unprecedented reforms to a state financial system that had failed to keep pace with the demands of the 21st century global economy, Mr. Flowers was able to adopt many innovative ideas through his “Standing Up for Change” campaign. Currently, he is an active member of the Massachusetts Democratic Party and was chosen as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 2004 and 2012 representing Delaware. He is the recipient of the Don K. Price Award from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
