CBS Pittsburgh: Tom Wolf Brings Business Skills to Run for Pa. Gov.

Posted on January 07, 2014 by Ryan Alexander

Tom Wolf campaigned in Pittsburgh earlier today where he sat down for a TV interview with KDKA Reporter Jon Delano.

During the interview, Tom discussed the state of the race and why his experience makes him the candidate Pennsylvania needs to bring real change to Harrisburg:

"People are looking for something different, and my credibility comes again from my story and from my ability to get that story out," noted Wolf.


That story, says the owner of the Wolf Organization that distributes American-made kitchen and building supplies, includes the way he treats his several hundred employees.


"I do pay all my employees 20 to 30 percent share of my profit every year in a cash distribution, and I do it because it's right," he says.


Wolf says Gov. Tom Corbett does not speak for job creators.


"I've run a business. I own a business. I know what it takes to build a business," said Wolf. "Crony capitalism is really not the way to build a good strong business or business environment."


Wolf, a Democrat who served as Secretary of Revenue under Gov. Ed Rendell, has very deep roots in south central Pennsylvania.


"It was my grandparents' house. It was built by my great-great-grandparents. I live there. I raised my family there," he said.


And with most of the candidates from the Philadelphia area, Wolf hopes western Pennsylvanians will identify with him.


"I am the only credible candidate I think living west of the Susquehanna River, and I try to claim that makes me a western Pennsylvanian."
