Thomas Westerman Wolf, more commonly known as Tom Wolf, is the 47th person to hold the title of Governor of Pennsylvania, and the current governor of the Keystone State too. Pennsylvania, which holds the distinction of being the 2nd state in the US, is also home to approximately 13 million people.
Pennsylvania governors should also be well acquainted with the attention that comes with governing one of the more prominent states on the political landscape. The good news for current governor Tom Wolf is that as he enters the latter portion of his two-term run as Pennsylvania governor, he leaves with a wonderful record and reputation. That puts him in good company along with many other former two-term Pennsylvania governors.
A common battleground state during the Presidential elections, the entire nation is often paying attention to the state of Pennsylvania. On the literal end, how the leadership of Pennsylvania goes so often goes the direction of the voters. On the figurative end, Pennsylvania's economic status is often viewed as a litmus test for the political party at the helm.
Pennsylvania governors have an important role, both locally and nationally, but recent history suggests a strong future for this historic State. That is also good news for the next governor to take the mantle and for the people of Pennsylvania.
