LOGAN TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY - The Governor outlined his plans at the Altoona Curve game, and some of the other spectators weighed in on what they want to see.

David Lord has been looking for work since April when he was laid off from his factory. He’s been using PA Careerlink and doing a lot of footwork to put in applications. He wants the Governor to focus on helping people like him.

Governor Tom Corbett acknowledged that was major need and said he was working to build a stronger more diverse economy. He says he's running for reelection on a record of balanced budgets and no new taxes, and he still wants pension reform. His plan is to have new state employees contribute more to their own 401K.

But former state employee Anthony Zumpetta says to look elsewhere. He wants them to shrink the legislature and start cutting costs there.

The election is basically just three months away.
