“I’d like to extend congratulations and most sincere best wishes to Governor Corbett as he takes the reins of the executive branch of state government on Tuesday January 18th. Individuals and families in the 22nd District — and indeed across the entire state — are looking to their new Governor and to their elected legislators for courageous, thoughtful and responsible leadership that will improve the quality of life in this Commonwealth.
