Last year, instead of holding a fundraising reception at Pennsylvania Society as typically is the case, I contributed the cost of such a reception to Pennsylvania food banks so that those who are less fortunate than many of us may enjoy a brighter holiday. My staff and I also participated in our own small day of service on the Thursday prior to Pennsylvania Society.
Today, the Tom Wolf Administration Transition is launching a new website that will allow Pennsylvanians to interact with the transition, learn more about the process, provide feedback, receive announcements, and submit resumes.
I'm about to go on stage in my hometown of York, but I wanted to thank you first.
As I travelled all across Pennsylvania during this campaign, I was amazed at the dedication, energy, and enthusiasm put forth by supporters like you to encourage others to participate in our democracy.
You made this campaign about more than electing me -- you made it about people coming together to improve our schools, our neighborhoods, and our state.
Since last Friday, the Fresh Start Bus has made twenty-five stops throughout Pennsylvania, and on Wednesday, Tom was on the trail again visiting State College, Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, Reading, and Coatesville.
The bus pulled into State College early yesterday morning, where Tom greeted more than one hundred supporters at the famous Berkey Creamery. In addition to enjoying some delicious chocolate ice cream, Tom shook hands and took pictures with supporters and stressed the importance of Tuesday's election.
You can count on the Wolf Campaign’s Centre County field office to be lively, with dozens of Penn State students and community members pouring in and out of the office daily. Jared DeLoof, the office's head Field Organizer, is working hard to make sure Centre County voters know Tom is the leader that can get Pennsylvanians back to work and the economy back on track.
Jared is confident that his team is ready for Election Day on Tuesday. Jared says that besides the excitement of getting Tom Wolf elected, volunteers keep coming back to help out because his team always finds individual ways for a volunteer to contribute.
Tom Wolf wants to ease the tax burden on middle class families. Tom will implement a five percent severance tax that will make oil and gas companies pay their fair share to help fund Pennsylvania's schools. Tom Wolf's personal income tax proposal will provide middle class families their first personal income tax break in 22 years. Tom Wolf's personal income tax plan will make the tax system more fair, and according to one analysis, 77 percent of Pennsylvania families will get a tax cut.
Throughout the Fresh Start Bus Tour, Tom Wolf has told supporters about his vision for the future of Pennsylvania. And on Tuesday -- day five of the tour -- Tom brought his fresh start message to Sharon, Meadville, Erie, and Dubois.
On Sunday, Tom Wolf continued the Western Pennsylvania leg of his Fresh Start Bus Tour with the support of his two daughters, Katie and Sarah, and his wife Frances in McKeesport, Washington, and Aliquippa.
The incredible turnout for the Days of Action this past weekend in West Philadelphia and all across Pennsylvania shows the tremendous enthusiasm Pennsylvanians have for Tom Wolf and his message of rebuilding a secure middle class and investing in education.
On November 4, we have an opportunity to elect a leader who has a proven track record of job creation, a plan to invest in quality public schools, and a vision to give Pennsylvania the future it deserves.
Yesterday, hundreds of supporters joined Tom Wolf at grassroots events on the first day of the statewide Fresh Start Bus Tour.
The tour kicked off in Tom's hometown of York, where a few hundred friends and neighbors turned out to cheer on Tom as he got ready to board the bus that will make stops across the state in the final days before Election Day.
On Friday, Tom Wolf kicked off a Fresh Start Bus Tour to spread his message of investing in public education and creating family-sustaining jobs to rebuild a thriving middle class.
Adding to the excitement of the bus tour was the news that two prominent Pennsylvania newspapers endorsed Tom Wolf because they believe he's the different kind of leader our commonwealth needs after four disastrous years of Governor Corbett's failed leadership.
Jeremiah Milligan is one of this campaign’s youngest volunteers to date -- but even though he won’t be able to vote on November 4, the 16-year-old high school junior is working hard to get the word out about electing Tom Wolf in his Philadelphia community.
Jeremiah’s role in the campaign is unique. He works closely with the campaign’s political department in Philadelphia providing administrative and advance support during events, such as last week’s event with First Lady Michelle Obama.
This is just the latest misstep in a string of desperate and dishonest attacks from a campaign that has consistently refused to tell the truth. In a previous ad titled “Toy Story,” FactCheck.org said that the ad should be called “Tall Story” for its many deceptions, and in another fact check, Corbett was called out specifically for being less than honest about job creation under his administration.
Governor Corbett’s dishonest ads are nothing more than an attempt to distract Pennsylvanians from his $1 billion education funding cut and an economy that sunk from 9th to 47th in job creation under his watch. Rather than explain himself to the voters, Corbett has time and again chosen to falsely attack Tom Wolf.
Carl Feldman is the organizer in charge of running the Lancaster site and organizing the city for a Tom Wolf victory. We got a chance to speak with Carl about the Lancaster office, his background, and how the Lancaster office is working with volunteers to help give Pennsylvania the fresh start it needs.
