Chances are if you're a Democrat in the City of Pittsburgh, you saw this in the past couple of days:website, or you saw a tweet about it.
While no one has yet formally declared they are running for Mayor of Pittsburgh, City Councilman Bill Peduto filed the paperwork necessary to run back in September; current Mayor, Luke Ravenstahl, said he was seeking reelection earlier this month; and Controller Michael Lamb said he will be running yesterday. There will also be dueling parties in NYC next month during Pennsylvania Society weekend for Bill and Luke.
As a longtime Peduto supporter, I of course urge you all to go to billpeduto.com and hit those 'Donate' and 'Volunteer' buttons!
We're a 5 to 1 Democratic city -- can we please also be a progressive one?!
