HARRISBURG - Gov. Rendell yesterday named Revenue Secretary Gregory C. Fajt as his senior adviser and nominated a York businessman and top Democratic Party donor to replace Fajt as head of the Revenue Department.
Rendell's nomination of Tom Wolf, 58, to the $124,940-a-year post will require confirmation by the state Senate. Wolf, chairman of the board of the Wolf Organization Inc., a building-materials distributor, has contributed more than $262,000 to Rendell since 2002, according to state campaign-finance records.
Wolf holds a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College, a master of philosophy degree from the University of London, and a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He served on a business-tax advisory commission that counseled Rendell on ways to create a fairer tax code.
