Governor’s Correspondence Office
Tom Wolf is a different kind of leader, and he will be a different kind of governor. As governor, Tom is focused on three simple goals: jobs that pay, schools that teach, and government that works.
Tom is not a product of the political system. He grew up in a small south central Pennsylvania town in York County and still lives in the house he was brought home to from the hospital.
Tom left York County to attend college at Dartmouth, but he interrupted his studies to join the Peace Corps and served two years in a small village in India before returning to finish his undergraduate degree. He later earned graduate degrees from the University of London and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Tom’s leadership philosophy is an extension of his lifelong investment in community development. In addition to serving on and leading the boards of numerous organizations dedicated to education, health, welfare, economic development, culture, and the arts, Tom has rolled up his sleeves to help build a Little League baseball field in his community, volunteered in soup kitchens, and paint a local school.
On January 20, 2015, Tom was sworn in as Pennsylvania's 47th governor.
Tom and Frances, his wife of 39 years, still live in York County and have two grown daughters, Sarah and Katie.
