Position Papers
As Governor, I will return integrity to Harrisburg. All plans for Pennsylvania start here. Until our government is fixed, it cannot fix the problems we face.
Pennsylvania's infrastructure is not only aged, it is unsafe, and ill-suited for Pennsylvania to position itself as a national leader. We must make more, better, and smarter investments in infrastructure to ensure the future prosperity of our Commonwealth. My infrastructure plan includes smart growth measures for local modes of transportation, including roads, bridges and public transportation.
Young people under 18 years old are 23 percent of our population, but they are 100 percent of our future. That's why I believe so strongly that we must give all of our young people an opportunity to achieve their dreams by helping them to pursue post-secondary education.
