Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s election-year message to members of the business community revolved Monday around Pennsylvania’s improved job growth and his accomplishments with a Republican-controlled Legislature. Speaking at a Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Wolf also reminded the crowd regularly about his business background — he ran his family-owned cabinet and furniture distributor for three decades — and he touted the $50 million he’s seeking in the budget to expand science and computer instruction in high schools and job training programs. Wolf’s competition for business support in November’s election will be Republican Scott Wagner, a former state senator who started the $75 million waste hauler Penn Waste Inc. and has run on a business-friendly platform of cutting taxes and regulation.
