Tonya Payne is running for City Council District 6. She was endorsed by the Allegheny County Democratic Committee.
As I don't live in District 6, you may well ask why I care about this race. Well, for one, I've known Tonya for over a year now via Democracy for America and have found her to be hardworking, honorable and very politically astute. Tonya was a Dean delegate and is a Ward Chair. She has a great record in community development.
I'm extremely confident that she'll make a great member of City Council.
And, oh yeah, I also helped design her new website. Check it out here:
Tonya is having a campaign announcement (with continental breakfast) this morning. Join Tonya for her announcement at 10:30 AM, Tues. March 22 (today) at 1901 Centre Ave (the old PA victory '04 headquarters on the Hill). This is a quick one -- about a half hour -- so do drop by!
For the record -- and in the interest of complete disclosure as I'm sure that I'll write about them from time to time -- I've volunteered in some capacity for the following candidates:
And, if I can find some free time, I'll volunteer for: Kathryn Hens-Greco
We've got some really topnotch folks running this year, so please check out their websites. The primary is not that far away!
