Corbett embraces transportation repairs and pension reform

Corbett embraces transportation repairs and pension reform

By ROBERT J. VICKERS,
The Patriot-News

NEW YORK - Nearly two years into his first term, Gov. Tom Corbett has finally responded to

the masses of Pennsylvania residents and business leaders who've clamored for the state to repair it's crumbling roads and bridges.

Corbett promised Saturday to present a plan to legislators next year addressing the state's neglected infrastructure. The remarks came during an appearance in Manhattan's aristocratic Metropolitan club as part of the annual Pennsylvania Society gathering of politicos and business interests in New York City.

During Corbett's Metropolitan club remarks, part of the annual Pennsylvania Manufacturer's Association luncheon, the governor also pledged to tackle pension reform and privatization of state liquor stores.

He also appeared mildly agitated by early campaign rhetoric from announced Democratic gubernatorial challenger John Hanger, who suggested Corbett mishandled the child molestation investigation of convicted former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

“We're not going to go into it,” Corbett said. “The man has never been involved in the criminal justice system. For him to opine on something like that is ludicrous. The man's trying to get you guys to write stories about him.”

But the governor waxed sardonic when queried on reports that GOP Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce Castor may challenge him in the 2014 Republican primary.

“Everybody can dream,” Corbett said.

So..... according to 'One Term Tom', people who have never been involved in the criminal justice system have no business having an opinion on it.
This guy is a joke.
He never was a governor of anything before he became PA's, why does he think he's qualified if he's never been a governor?
Dipstick.
