SIGN UP FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS
For many, Labor Day represents the unofficial end of summer vacations and backyard barbecues with friends and neighbors as our children head back to school.
But more importantly, it is a celebration of the contributions of hardworking men and women like you.
As your governor, I’m honored to have the opportunity to see that work ethic on display every day as I travel around the Commonwealth to towns, factories, small businesses and entire regions buzzing with activity again.
We have come a long way these last four years in giving more Pennsylvanians the opportunity to return to work. We have kept taxes low and worked with the private sector to create more than 180,000 new jobs since 2011.
I look forward to celebrating today in Pittsburgh with some good friends.
Friends who because of our work last year to pass a bipartisan transportation investment, will go back to work tomorrow as they continue to fix our roads and bridges so we all might get to and from work a little quicker, and a little safer.
They exhibit for me what I see and know every day to be the best and brightest workforce in the world here in Pennsylvania. It’s my honor to fight for you each and every day in Harrisburg.
Please have a happy and safe Labor Day.
Governor of Pennsylvania
Today, we celebrate the American worker and honor the strong tradition of hard work that makes our country great.
As Republicans, we believe that the government’s role is to provide us with an equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream through determination, innovation and ingenuity.
As the party of economic freedom and opportunity, that’s what we’re fighting for every day.
I hope you and your family have a safe and fun Labor Day holiday.
If you try to follow the flip-flopping and hypocrisy coming from Tom Wolf on the transportation bill, your head is likely to spin. Only a day after candidate Wolf stated, “I applaud the Legislature and the governor for actually coming through, coming up with a transportation plan that actually allows us to fix our bridges and actually move our transportation infrastructure forward” (“Erie Business and Manufacturers’ Association Luncheon with Tom Wolf,” Aug. 11), Mr. Wolf released an attack ad criticizing Gov. Tom Corbett for the passage of the transportation bill.
On Labor Day, we take the opportunity to celebrate all the efforts of American labor forces. We also have the opportunity to recognize those people who are allies of organized labor.
Gov. Tom Corbett — with his support of comprehensive highway, infrastructure and transportation funding and his continued promotion of natural gas production — is the Laborers’ District Council of Western Pennsylvania choice for governor. Also, in spite of unfortunate, misleading information regarding education funding, he continues to allocate more money for schools and education than recent previous governors of Pennsylvania.
