Governor Tom Corbett toured the region Saturday before arriving in Ridgway for several speaking engagements.
After visiting the Jefferson County Fair in the afternoon, Corbett arrived at The Hound radio station in Ridgway at roughly 4:45 p.m. to meet with local philanthropist Denny Heindl for an interview for "Talk of the Town" which aired Sunday at noon.
Corbett, with a State Police escort, arrived at the station in a black Chevrolet Suburban. There he met briefly with Elk County Republican Chairperson Grace Jesberger before entering the station building with Heindl.
The governor discussed a wide range of issues, including his run in politics, liquor stores, Marcellus Shale, and the flooding in Elk County in May.
