Tom Wolf saying, “It has been the privilege of a lifetime to serve the citizens of the Commonwealth as their elected State Treasurer for the past six years. But with my goals at Treasury now achieved-- and with a new Governor now in office to appoint my successor-- it is time for me to return to the private sector, where most of my life’s work has been."
