PA Governor Ridge to Head Anti-Terrorism Office

October 17, 2001  | 

President George W. Bush named Gov. Tom Ridge to a new Cabinet-level anti-terrorism office. Gov. Ridge resigned as governor of Pennsylvania on Oct. 5 to become Director of the new Office of Homeland Security.

After accepting his new position, Ridge explained to his constituents, "In the past few days we have witnessed the unimaginable bravery of hundreds of firefighters, police and rescuers -- and the heroism of a plane full of passengers who bravely chose, in the skies over Pennsylvania, to refuse to surrender to terrorism...It is time we follow their example."

Lt. Gov. Mark Schweiker will serve as governor of Pennsylvania for the remainder of Ridge's term.
