The featured speaker at the event was Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania, Jim Cawley. Mr. Cawley spoke about the power of the private sector in creating family-sustaining jobs to help turn around Pennsylvania’s economy. Cawley also talked about curbing excess spending in Harrisburg, and the administration’s pledge “to not raise taxes.” Just two months into the job, and facing a $4 billion budget deficit, Cawley and Governor Tom Corbett has found it necessary to freeze funding for more than 700 redevelopment projects.
