Hanger Makes Guv Bid Official
In a series of three stops, the Democrat will begin his candidacy on Wednesday. The first event will take place in Philadelphia, the second in Harrisburg, and the third on Thursday in Pittsburgh.
“John will travel by school bus between Philadelphia and Harrisburg to emphasize his commitment to public education and to all Pennsylvanians,” wrote spokeswoman Kathleen Daugherty.
PoliticsPA broke the news two weeks ago that Hanger, who served as Secretary of Environmental Protection from 2008 to 2011, was exploring a bid. Prior to that, he founded and lead the environmental group PennFuture – presently the largest eco-group in Pa. not to call for a moratorium on Marcellus shale gas drilling.
Since then, he created a website and announced a reception at Pennsylvania Society in December.
