Top elected Democrats in Allegheny County announced their endorsement Saturday of Tom Wolf in his bid for governor.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, state Sen. Jim Ferlo and Pittsburgh Councilman R. Daniel Lavelle, committee chairs, and community members gathered in the Allegheny County Courthouse Courtyard to endorse Wolf, 65, a York County businessman.

“We have a state to change, and I know that this is the guy that can do it,” Peduto said.

Wolfe is the chief executive officer the Wolf Organization Inc., the parent company of WOLF, the largest supplier of kitchen cabinets in the U.S.

Wolfe served head of the Revenue Department under then-Gov. Ed Rendell, resigning in 2008.

“I am not your traditional candidate,” said Wolf, whose policy initiatives as governor, according to his campaign, would include rebuilding the middle-class and attracting high-tech, high-wage jobs to Pennsylvania.

The primary election is May 20 and the general election is Nov. 4.
