Gov. Tom Corbett kicked off his re-election bid by claiming that he has created 149,000 jobs since he has been in office. Gallup puts Pennsylvania in the bottom third of states in job creation. He also has said that there have been over 200,000 jobs created because of Marcellus Shale.
What that indicates to me is that Marcellus Shale is the reason for all of the jobs Mr. Corbett says he has created. If that’s the case I believe I could have been governor and the jobs would have still been created.
