    After months of obstruction, we've made real progress on a budget deal and for the first time I'm optimistic we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Governor Tom Wolf: Let's talk about the budget

    When I crafted this proposal, I knew we wouldn't be able to solve the challenges facing Pennsylvania by doing the same thing Harrisburg has been doing for years -- the time has come for bold reform.

    Pennsylvanians want high-quality public schools; they want the oil and gas companies to pay their fair share; and they want an end to continual hikes in property taxes many homeowners simply can't afford.

  • Tom Wolf: Make a stand for fairness and equality here in Pennsylvania

    Without a non-discrimination law, LGBT Pennsylvanians and their families can be fired, denied a mortgage, or refused service at a hotel, library, or even a hospital.

  • Frances Wolf: Watch this video from my husband on the budget

    Since my husband announced his budget proposal, I've been holding roundtable discussions about what's at stake if we don't move our state forward in bold new direction.

  • Tom Wolf: This budget directly affects the future of Pennsylvania

    Right now, Pennsylvania stands at a crossroads. We have a $2.3 billion deficit, an education crisis, and a sluggish economy. Our credit rating has been downgraded five successive times, making us one of the least creditworthy states in the nation.

    That's clearly not acceptable.

  • New York Times Profiles Governor Tom Wolf's Historic Campaign

    Tom Wolf told the gathered crowd this week, "I'm going to be an unconventional governor."

    Actually, Mr. Wolf already is. The only person to defeat a sitting governor in the four decades that Pennsylvania has allowed its chief executive a second term, Mr. Wolf is also the only Democrat in the country who picked off a Republican governor at a time when his party's record was only slightly less calamitous than that of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Holiday Tradition of Volunteering and Contributing to Food Banks

    By Tom Wolf

    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.

    This is a tradition I plan to extend.
