Dan Wolf is the first-term State Senator from the Cape and Islands, one of the most unusual legislative districts in the country, stretching from the far tip of Provincetown across 11 Cape towns plus much of the Town of Barnstable and all of the islands of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Gosnold. He was elected in November, 2010, after his first campaign. This is his first elected position.

The Senator’s family roots are in Philadelphia. He came to the Cape in his first year of life, and grew up summering along the shores of Pleasant Bay. With four siblings, a father who is a successful business entrepreneur, and a mother who is a professor of American history, family conversations around the dinner table were always spirited, and often political. Senator Wolf attended Germantown Friends School for 13 years; Quaker values and education shaped his worldview.

After graduating from Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut in 1980 with a bachelor’s degree in political science, the Senator combined his passions: Cape Cod and airplanes. He earned his private pilot license at the Chatham Municipal Airport and then his commercial pilot and flight instructor certificates while in Hyannis. After working as a community and union organizer in the Boston area, he returned to the Cape in the mid-1980s to manage the Chatham Municipal Airport, where he worked as a flight instructor and aircraft mechanic.

In 1988, Senator Wolf and a handful of others founded what would become Cape Air and Nantucket Airlines. They began with one airplane, and one route – Provincetown to Boston. Twenty years later, Cape Air is one of the largest independent regional airlines in the country, serving 40 communities and 700,000 passengers annually with service in regions as diverse as Key West, rural Missouri, and Guam. Cape Air employs nearly 1000 people, one of the largest employers in the region. Headquarters remain in Hyannis.

In 1995, in keeping with the Senator’s principles of marrying sound business and fair equity, Cape Air became an employee-owned company. Cape Air also has earned recognition as one of the most philanthropic companies in southeastern Massachusetts. In addition, the company is an environmental leader and has initiated a comprehensive Greening Initiative. The cornerstone is one of the largest photovoltaic systems in southeastern Massachusetts, which provides 100 percent of electricity used in the company’s 50,000-square-foot administration and maintenance headquarters.

Senator Wolf believes that his strong business, philanthropic, and environmental background, coupled with his equally strong belief that our economy should serve the core beliefs of our citizens rather than define our direction, will help him represent the Cape and Islands well.

He and his wife Heidi Schuetz have lived in the same house in Harwich for 23 years, raising three daughters. Two have graduated from Nauset Regional High School; their youngest will graduate this year.
