Priorities for Pennsylvania

Priorities for Pennsylvania

Governor Tom Wolf is a leader consistently at work for the people of Pennsylvania. When he took office in 2015, he came to Harrisburg with big plans to move Pennsylvania forward.

During his two terms in office, Gov. Wolf turned around the state’s finances while making smart investments in the people of Pennsylvania. By making transformational investments in education, health care, workforce development and business growth, and implementing policy to lower barriers Pennsylvanians face, Gov. Wolf has charted a path to prosperity for Pennsylvania’s future.

Gov. Wolf works every day to build a safe and equitable commonwealth for everyone. His commitment to change has fueled the commonwealth’s comeback, leaving Pennsylvania in a much better place than when he arrived.
