Statement From Tom:
In order to restore trust in government, we must restore transparency. Throughout this campaign, I’ve always felt it is important to be transparent. That’s why I have shared information about my privately held business, transaction history, company profits, personal loan information, and now four years of tax information.
Throughout my life, I have invested in things that matter to me – whether it was our local little league, my business, or this campaign. I have made significant charitable contributions to organizations throughout Pennsylvania including the York School district and others.
While I believe it is important to share this information, we need to continue to talk about the bigger issues facing Pennsylvania including: How are we going to fix our schools? How are we going to create jobs? How are we going to make Pennsylvania an economic dynamo? How are we going to restore confidence in our government? Those are the issues I have taken on throughout my campaign. I have released the most comprehensive policy plan, my Fresh Start policy plan. I will continue to lead the charge for openness and transparency. I will improve the campaign finance system and require more and better disclosure. I will make government data available to the public in a way that engages Pennsylvanians and increases transparency.
Pennsylvania needs a different kind of leader who will fight for openness and transparency in government and change the culture of Harrisburg.
