I am so sorry more of my neighbors did not attend the "meet the candidates" evening on Oct. 9 for city council District 7.
The five candidates running for the office met at the St. Maria Goretti Parish (formerly Immaculate Conception).
The moderator was Andy Sheehan from KDKA, who did a magnificent job controlling the forum. The five candidates were David Powell, Tony Ceoffe, Deb Gross, Tom Fallon and James Wudarczyk.
The subjects covered were city services, public safety, absentee landlords, Pittsburgh city school taxes and seniors (older neighbors).
All the candidates were given three minutes to speak on all these subjects and the answers were very interesting!
They all handled themselves very professionally and my hat is off to all of them and Mr. Sheehan, as well as the Bloomfield Citizens Council for putting together this public forum.
