As a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh, I am so very tired of the "old boys" political network that keeps our wonderful city from moving into the 21st century. It is time for fresh and younger leadership with progressive ideas. Former Auditor General Jack Wagner needs to find a job outside of politics. He is out of touch with what the city needs. He will add nothing new or innovative and his most recent gigs on the state level kept him away for two decades.
City Councilman Bill Peduto, on the other hand, has current experience in local government, along with his master's degree in public and international affairs. Bill and a team of younger people on city council can help bring our city out of financial crisis instead of "kicking the can down the road," attract younger people and make government more transparent, accountable and efficient.
The fact that Luke Ravenstahl is behind these awful "Swift Boat" ads against Mr. Peduto only reinforces his total inability to lead and his lack of maturity and ethical behavior. Hopefully the backlash will demonstrate that! I can't wait to see what the FBI reveals in the future! I would like to see Jack Wagner clearly distance himself from Luke's influence.
I and most of my friends are supporting Bill Peduto for the future of the city we love.
