Under the leadership of Governor Tom Corbett and Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, a former PAFCR Chairman, Pennsylvania’s economy is recovering and we can truly call Pennsylvania a place we would like to work in, raise a family and even start a business. It is because of the business and family friendly economic environment as well as the restored fiscal health of the state that the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans is proud to endorse Tom Corbett for re-election in 2014.
Chairman Darin Bartholomew: “To college students it is vital that our law makers legislate with a focus on the long term. Governor Corbett is 1 of 4 Governors to receive an A rating from The CATO Institute. He also reduced state spending for the first time in 40 years while providing record basic public education funding. This has put Pennsylvania on a path that will benefit generations to come.”
Co-Chairman Christopher Wetherson: “I have seen first-hand the fiscal responsibility and leadership Governor Corbett has shown under a tough economic recovery. Governor Corbett is just what Pennsylvania needs.”
The focus on statewide fiscal health has seen positive reaction from business. After 4 years of not raising taxes, Corbett’s administration is responsible for private sector growth generating 141,000 new jobs. “Not only has the Corbett administration grown the private sector but Lt. Governor Cawley and the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission have brought responsible national gas drilling to Pennsylvania which helps to support 200,000 jobs” said Bartholomew.
“I am excited to accept the endorsement of Pennsylvania’s College Republicans and their help to spread the “Promises Kept” message. The decisions I have made and will make in the next four years as your Governor are focused on what is best for the Pennsylvania you will lead in the next generation. I want the best education, job opportunities and future for you and we are well on our way. I hope you will share this endorsement with your friends on Facebook, Twitter followers and join the grassroots team to knock on doors throughout the Commonwealth.” – Governor Tom Corbett
The Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans and its over 30 chapters across the Commonwealth are excited and ready to support Governor Corbett and Lieutenant Governor Cawley during the upcoming campaign. Their record and future agenda will pave the way for a better Pennsylvania, a Pennsylvania that we will want to stay in after graduation.
