// // in Company, Government, Politics

The Honorable Tom Ridge, Pennsylvania’s 43rd Governor, today issued the following statement on the decision by the DNC to award the 2016 Democratic National Convention to Philadelphia:

 

“When it comes to large-scale events, few do it better than Philadelphia. As my friend and former Governor Ed Rendell and I have been telling anyone who would listen, Philadelphia showcases the perfect blend of American history with cosmopolitan appeal. Philadelphia put on quite a show for the Republican Convention 15 years ago and will no doubt do the same when the Democrats come to town. Congratulations to Mayor Nutter and all those who worked tirelessly to prepare and submit the winning bid.”
