Letter to the Editor

Tom Wolf is running for governor and from the beginning, he has been bragging about how he's going to make Pennsylvania a better place by raising taxes, especially on the natural gas industry.

From what I have read, the boom in gas drilling here in Western Pennsylvania has brought farmers and landowners an income that some need to hold on to their way of life, gas drilling has created thousands of jobs and the local colleges can't teach the gas drilling trade fast enough to keep up with the demand.

The last time I checked, people who work in the gas industry and landowners collecting royalties all pay taxes on that income. Why is Tom Wolf trying to kill the golden goose?
