Gov. Tom Corbett has won the endorsement of the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry in his race to keep his gubernatorial job.
“We endorse Tom Corbett and Jim Cawley for re-election because they have made the tough decisions necessary to build a stronger Pennsylvania: one that will now create jobs for generations,” said Guy Ciarrocchi, CCCBI president and CEO.
“Thanks to the governor’s leadership in Harrisburg, Chester County is rebounding from the recession and huge deficit that his administration inherited,” Ciarrocchi said. “We are now stronger with more people employed in the private sector than at any other point in our state’s history. We need to build on the economic successes of the last four years: from the jobs and lower energy costs due to natural gas from Marcellus Shale to improving our roads and mass transit to support for our family farms.”
Corbett, a Republican, said he was honored to have the endorsement of the 800-member Chamber, calling the organization a “tremendous partner in creating a business-friendly climate here in Pennsylvania that promotes job growth and economic development.”
“I look forward to working together over the next four years to continue building our pro-business agenda to bring even more jobs to our stronger Pennsylvania,” said Corbett.
