What Fresh Hell Is This?

The P-G on Dowd

I dunno, but I guess this qualifies as an endorsement. The P-G's editorial begins with:

Democrats in City Council District 7 have a high-contrast choice in the May 15 primary.

They can go with the incumbent, Len Bodack Jr., son of the longtime state senator, veteran of the Democratic Committee and foe of budget cuts that were needed to save the city. Or they can opt for the fresh thinking and independence of Patrick Dowd, a school board member who has been a force for change in Pittsburgh education and who didn't shrink from closing schools to reduce costly overcapacity.

And ends with:
Democrats need to choose carefully next month since no Republican is running and their nominee is likely to be the next council member. They should break with the past and make Patrick Dowd their choice.
In between there's some good stuff on the candidates.

For more info, see my interview with Dowd.

There is a Libertarian slated for that race. A 'running mate.'
