Read Governor Wolf’s inaugural address here. Here is an excerpt:
“More than anything, I want to thank all Pennsylvanians who worked so hard to get me here, and those who took a chance to vote for a different kind of leader.
To those who didn’t, I hope I’m able to give you a reason to believe over the next four years. I am an unconventional Governor.
I am not a product of our political system.
During my campaign, I pledged to be a different kind of governor, and I will keep that promise.
This age—and this time—demands nothing less.
We are told that we are living through a transformational era.
I may be the first governor of Pennsylvania who operated a forklift…managed a hardware store… volunteered for the Peace Corps… and ran a business.
We need leaders today who are willing to listen to each other . . . and learn from each other . . . and work together to give all Pennsylvanians a shot at a great life.
The world hasn’t seen this much change happen …this fast …since we moved from farms to factories more than 100 years ago.
For those who are part of that change, who are ready for that change, this new era is creating opportunities that our ancestors never imagined.”
