Governor Tom Wolf hailed Pennsylvania’s progress and promise during his inaugural speech on the steps of the state capitol today.  His speech revealed much about his vision for Pennsylvania in the next four years. While acknowledging a “divided Harrisburg”, he did hail several bipartisan accomplishments during his first term. They included a medical marijuana law, protections for domestic violence victims and a more modern liquor system. He urged lawmakers to work together.




Pennsylvania’s new Lt. Governor, John Fetterman, took the oath of office administered by Superior Court Judge Debbie Kunselman. The unconventional politician formerly served as the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, a small mill town in Allegheny County.
