State Leaders Come Together in Effort to Attract Amazon HQ2 to Pennsylvania

first_img October 18, 2017 Economy,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – On the eve of the deadline to submit proposals for Amazon’s second headquarters in North America, Amazon HQ2, Governor Tom Wolf today highlighted his work to build bipartisan support for a robust effort to attract the company to the commonwealth.Governor Wolf has spearheaded efforts to promote the commonwealth as the prime location for the Amazon HQ2 project, launching the Amazon in PA website, which includes joint letters of support from Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation, legislative leaders, education advocates, and cabinet officials. Additionally, the commonwealth will submit a state-level proposal to accompany the proposals submitted by Pennsylvania’s communities.“Pennsylvania continues to lead the way for successful businesses and communities with innovation and imagination. We’ve been here since before our country’s founding, and we’re equipped to support and sustain business for centuries to come,” said Governor Wolf. “Our location at the geographical center of the East Coast, rich cultural heritage, abundant natural resources, and job-ready workforce has made us a hub for commerce and a leader in technological innovation and education.”The governor’s efforts in responding to this historic opportunity have also resulted in collective letters of support from Pennsylvania’s congressional leaders expressing collective support for the placement of Amazon’s second company headquarters, cabinet officials outlining the administration’s efforts and historic investments in education, workforce development, business development, and transportation, higher education advocates representing more than 360 postsecondary institutions highlighting why Pennsylvania is the best choice for Amazon, and bipartisan state leadership expressing their full support for Amazon to select a location in the Keystone State.Amazon is expected to invest over $5 billion in construction and create as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs. In addition to direct hiring and investment, construction and ongoing operations is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding community.“We believe we have the strongest proposal and are extremely well-positioned to win this project,” continued Governor Wolf. “We are proud to have coalesced all of our state leaders and partners in this effort and would be proud to be the home of Amazon HQ2.” State Leaders Come Together in Effort to Attract Amazon HQ2 to Pennsylvaniacenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Tiger Woods is taking a week off from his 2019 tournament schedule, opting to skip the Valspar Championship in favor of next week’s WGC-Match Play, and it’s a lighter field overall as the PGA Tour continues its Florida swing at the Innisbrook Resort.Woods, who finished tied for 30th at The Players Championship, nearly won the Valspar in 2018, providing the first glimpse of success early in his comeback tour while losing by one stroke after missing birdie on the 72nd hole. He’ll play one more tune-up tournament before The Masters in April.last_img read more
