Tom Wolf

Tom Wolf

 

January 20, 2015 Tom Wolf was inaugurated into office as governor of Pennsylvania. Here are some things you should know about our new governor.

 

Tom Wolf grew up in a small, south central Pennsylvania town and still lives in the house he was brought home to from the hospital. (Talk about a mama’s boy!)

 

Tom graduated from three colleges, Dartmouth (BA), University of London (MA) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (PhD). And during his studies, he joined the Peace Corps.

 

In the Peace Corps, Tom worked on agricultural and irrigation projects for two years in a small rural village in India.

 

After graduating from M.I.T., Tom returned home and worked as a forklift operator and warehouse worker in the family business.

 

After working in the family business for a while, Tom took a risk by securing a loan with his two cousins to buy the family’s business. As CEO, Tom turned it into America’s largest supplier of kitchen cabinets and a leading provider of specialty building products.

 

In 2006, Tom was appointed to serve in Governor Ed Rendell’s cabinet as Secretary of Revenue. As Revenue Secretary, Tom donated his salary to charity. He even drove his own Jeep across Pennsylvania to meet with over 2000 workers and learn more about their jobs.

Overall, Tom Wolf seemed to be a great pick for Pennsylvania Governor. Learn more about him: http://www.wolfforpa.com/
