September 24 Press Club Luncheon
Gov. Tom Wolf
Democratic Candidate for Re-Election
Tom Wolf grew up in Mt. Wolf, a small south central Pennsylvania town where he still lives in the house he was brought home to from the hospital.
He graduated from Dartmouth College, the University of London, and M.I.T. During his studies, he joined the Peace Corps where he worked on agricultural and irrigation projects for two years in a small rural village in India.
Before he was governor, he was the owner of the Wolf Organization, a distributor of lumber and other building products. Gov. Wolf bought this family business and grew the company—eventually more than quintupling the business in size.
He was elected governor in 2014.
He and his wife Frances have been married since 1975. They have two daughters.
