Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf
(took office in January 2015)

“You talk about recycling plastic. You talk about recycling paper. How about recycling land? We thought it was a “green” initiative because, for every company you support building on the old infrastructure, you’re not building on green fields.”

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge
(1995-2001)
