On Tuesday, Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Bob Casey joined federal, state and local leaders to celebrate the recent arrival of the first two super post-Panamax cranes at The Port of Philadelphia.

According to KYW News Radio:

“Local, state and federal officials, along with dock workers, say two enormous new cranes rising from the Port of Philadelphia will keep them competitive with other top-notch ports. And, recent infrastructure improvements will translate to nearly 7,000 jobs.”

Throughout his time in office, Governor Wolf has been dedicated to investing in the PhilaPort, which is one of the most substantial job creation opportunities in the area and has generated more than $100 million in state and local tax revenues annually.

“My administration is working hard to invest critical dollars in improvements at PhilaPort, so that we can create thousands of jobs and grow the economy of this region, and the entire commonwealth,” said Governor Wolf. “Pennsylvania’s Ports are vital to the economic success of Pennsylvania, and I am proud to say that the continued success of PhilaPort is one of my administration’s highest priorities.”

TRANSCRIPT:

Ordinary Pennsylvanians live lives that have many, many challenges.

One of the reasons I ran for this office was because I wanted to move Pennsylvania forward and I knew that to do that, I had to take on the powers that be and to change the way business was done in Harrisburg.

I think our political system holds us back from the future we deserve and our government should be looking out for 12.8 million Pennsylvanians, not just a handful of lobbyists. We need to change that.

As soon as he took office, Governor Wolf immediately sent Harrisburg legislators, insiders, and lobbyists a signal that he was not going to do things the way they were always done. He announced that he would donate his salary to charity and would refuse a state pension and enacted some of the strongest executive branch ethics reforms in the country.  He:

  • Signed an executive order banning anyone in his administration from taking gifts.

  • Reformed the legal contracting process to end pay-to-play.

  • Required all of his cabinet’s expenses to be posted publicly so taxpayers can see how their money is spent.

But Governor Wolf is continuing his fight to change Harrisburg. He is pushing for a full gift ban for the legislature, reforming the legislature’s per diem process to make it more transparent and accountable to taxpayers, and stopping pay to legislators and their top staff, as well as the governor and top officials in the executive branch, until a complete budget is passed.

Wolf Campaign Launches New Video and Website to Reveal “Worst of Harrisburg Wagner”

PENNSYLVANIA – Today, the Wolf campaign launched a website and web video highlighting Harrisburg insider Scott Wagner’s record of being a typical politician who cares more about himself and special interests than the people of Pennsylvania.

“Scott Wagner is the very worst of Harrisburg and he’s unhinged from the reality of everyday Pennsylvanians,” said Jeff Sheridan, campaign manager for Tom Wolf for Governor. “Wagner is beholden to lobbyists and special interests and he’s leading the charge to block a commonsense severance tax in order to appease the oil and gas industry that has spent over $60 million on lobbying and political donations for Wagner and his cronies.”
