Do you think your governor has done a good job during the pandemic? [View all]

We all know Trump has not, but how about your governor? I think Gov. Wolf in PA has been great. Issued non-essential business closures very early, which became early stay at home orders in the worst spots in the state. Expanded the stay at home order when needed. I definitely think PA would be worse without his actions.
