In January, Gov. Tom Wolf joined the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia to give the business community a peek into his economic development platform for 2018 and share a few thoughts on Grow PA, the evolving statewide economic agenda that aims to influence state policies around healthcare, infrastructure and higher education.

Now the Chamber is giving Pennsylvanians a chance to hear from candidates on the other side of the aisle.

On Tuesday, March 6 at the National Constitution Center, civic and business leaders across the commonwealth will have the opportunity to learn how the four Republican candidates for governor plan on growing Pennsylvania’s economy before the primary election in May.

Those four candidates — lawyer Laura Ellsworth, former healthcare consultant Paul Mango and York County state Sen. Scott Wagner  — will discuss and debate their economic development platforms and tackle questions related to the Grow PA agenda.


The event, which begins at 8:00 a.m. and wraps up at 10:00 a.m., is open to non-members.
