Governor Tom Wolf Visits RIDC Mill 19 to Announce Innovation Funding

We had a very special guest at RIDC Mill 19 today. Governor Tom Wolf visited and announced funding to support our region’s future of innovation.

“Part of the reason for the funding is to keep Pennsylvania competitive with other states developing a reputation for innovation, Gov. Wolf said. ‘We’ve lost the mojo we had once and this is how we get back….We cannot afford for fall behind.'” – Lauren Rosenblatt, PG Tech Reporter.
