Stop hanging up on governor, Pennsylvania employees are told

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) " The Pennsylvania governor's personal touch doesn't always get him very far.

Second-year Gov. Tom Wolf likes to dial his own phone calls, but the Democrat is finding disbelieving receptionists sometimes hang up on him. That's what happened recently when he called his community and economic development secretary and a Democratic state lawmaker.

Wolf spokesman Jeff Sheridan says that's what prompted an email to government agencies, first reported by the Philadelphia Daily News.

The email asked that switchboard operators not hang up on anyone "claiming to be Tom Wolf."
