Former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge today issued the following statement on today’s decision by Gov. Tom Corbett not to appeal a federal court opinion on marriage equality in Pennsylvania:

 

“I applaud Tom Corbett’s decision not to appeal Judge Jones’ ruling on same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania. While it may not be a universally popular decision within our party, it’s the right decision at the right time. That’s what strong leaders do. Gov. Corbett is proving yet again to be a pragmatic leader who at all times shows respect for those on either side of difficult social issues.”
