One of Governor Tom Corbett's challengers was in Erie on Friday.
Mayor Ed Pawlowski is the current mayor of Allentown. He's one of five democratic candidates vying for the seat.
Pawlowski spoke at Erie's Democratic Headquarters downtown, outlining his plan if he's elected.
One of the top priorities is education funding, which has been a controversial topic for Corbett.
Pawlowski also has some big plans for our city, which is one of only two ports in PA.xxx
"I don't think we've put enough resources in Erie as a state to really build up the economy here and attract the jobs coming from New York and from Ohio," he said. "As Governor I would do that, I think it's really critical that we invest here in the city."
The vote for Governor will be November 4th, 2014.
