Governor Wolf has taken a different approach for Pennsylvania

As governor, I have taken a different approach for Pennsylvania families by prioritizing important responsibilities, such as protecting our seniors, making sure children receive the quality education they deserve, working with law enforcement and medical professionals to battle the opioid and heroin epidemic, and rebuilding our middle class by putting more people to work.

By focusing on these priorities over the first two years of my term, we've:

  • Expanded options for seniors to stay in their homes as they age.
  • Brought back important programs to our schools like career and technical education and better-prepared students for careers in business and industrial technology.
  • Equipped more first responders with the life-saving drug Naloxone and expanded treatment to tens of thousands of people suffering from addiction to opioids and heroin.
  • Put 82,000 Pennsylvanians back to work, and big projects are moving forward like the Shell Cracker Plant in Beaver, the Gautier Steel Plant in Johnstown, and the Port of Philadelphia.

Today, I furthered these efforts when I introduced my third budget that saves $2.1 billion by focusing on making sure Harrisburg eliminates unnecessary government bureaucracy, shrinking the size of our government, and eliminating waste so we can protect these important programs.

This is a different approach for Pennsylvania -- different than the failed Harrisburg policies of the past. Working together, we've made significant progress to address the commonwealth's financial challenges and to protect education and programs for seniors, and fight the opioid and heroin crisis, but there is still more work to do.

I believe in the potential of Pennsylvania and I'm proud of the progress we've made -- say you're with me to help get this budget passed:

Thank you,

Tom Wolf

Will Governor Wolf and the Democrats once again try to slide quietly through the budget season without addressing the real financial crisis? Not one mention of reforming the bankrupt and blood-gushing state employees (as well as public schoolteachers) pension system. The union thugs with their big campaign contributions still control the Democratic Party in Pennsylvania. It is irresponsible and borderline criminal how they have ignored the worsening pension crisis. Ask a local school board member what percentage of our tax dollars are now doing to this bankrupt, outdated pension system. Staggering!

Gov. Tom Wolf doesn't accept his $190,823 gubernatorial salary, a commitment he made prior to taking office. Instead, he is donating it to United Way organizations at the end of every quarter. Check: http://www.pennlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2015/07/where_does_gov_tom_wolfs_entir.html I wonder how much of their salaries do Scarnati and Thompson give to charities? -- It's a matter of public record. If the REPUBLICAN controlled legislature of Pennsylvania wanted to do something about the "blood-gushing State Employees Pension" system they have the power to do so.

If he's donating it then the money comes out of the state fund. Glad you couldn't figure that out

Why don't you check the record, dildine (2:36)? See how many Democrats voted for reforming these outlandish pension benefits. Then look at the PSEA campaign contributions. It actually passed in the Pennsylvania Senate. But in the House, look at that vote by the Democrats who received the highest contributions from the teachers' union. Looking forward to reading your response.
