Republican Candidate for Governor
A life-long resident of York County, PA, Scott Wagner is the owner of Penn Waste, headquartered in York County, one of the largest recycling plants in the nation.
He was raised on a farm and graduated from Dallastown Area High School in 1973. He spent one semester at Williamsport Area Community College, but dropped out to pursue business ventures.
A lifelong member of the Republican Party, Wagner spent what he called “a significant amount” of his money to support “pro-business” candidates in the 2010 elections, and in 2013 he made Pennsylvania history when he was elected to the PA Senate as a write-in candidate and represented York County in the Senate until 2018.
He and his wife Tracy have four children.
