Governor Wolf Continues Visits to 14 Northern Pennsylvania Counties
September 21, 2017
Harrisburg, Pa. – Today is the second day of Governor Tom Wolf’s four-day, 14-county visit in northern Pennsylvania with stops in Sayre, Bradford County; Mansfield, Tioga County; Coudersport, Potter County; and Emporium, Cameron County.
“It is important that every part of Pennsylvania, big and small, rural and urban, understand that we’re listening to them and working to improve their communities,” Governor Wolf said. “As I travel through Pennsylvania, it is clear that no matter the area, there’s a lot of important work being done to make communities stronger. Our job at the state is to support those efforts and what I’ve seen throughout this trip is that we’re already making a lot of progress in areas like community development, education and workforce training.”
The governor’s first stop was Rynone Manufacturing Corp, a family-owned manufacturing business, where he conducted a roundtable discussion with Bradford County businesses on workforce and economic development. After the discussion, he toured the company’s manufacturing facility.
Rynone was followed by a visit to Warren L Miller Elementary School in Mansfield, where the governor, joined by First Lady Frances Wolf, visited several classrooms and talked with teachers, administrators and education partners.
Gov. Wolf will visit Cole Memorial Hospital in Coudersport at 2:30 p.m., where he and the First Lady will tour the facility and meet healthcare staff, administrators, and board members.
Friday, Sept. 22, Gov. Wolf and the First Lady will visit McKean, Warren, and Forest counties with stops at Zippo Manufacturing in Bradford, Kinzua Bridge State Park in Mt Jewett, Whirley-DrinkWorks! in Warren, and the Tionesta Market Village in Tionesta.
On Thursday, the governor stopped in Jim Thorpe, Carbon County; Tunkhannock, Wyoming County; Montrose, Susquehanna County; and Dushore, Sullivan County to hear from business leaders, employees and healthcare workers about economic development, workforce training and healthcare in their communities.
Stops Saturday include locations in Elk, Jefferson, and Clearfield counties.
