The office of Mayor Bill Peduto published a report today touting his achievements in his first 100 days in office, touching on several areas of his far-reaching agenda.

"Mayor William Peduto has only been in office for 100 days, but his team has already delivered on many of the important initiatives, issues, and reforms that residents across Pittsburgh want to see," the report said.

(See Sunday's Post-Gazette for a comprehensive look at the mayor's first 100 days.)

In today's news release, Mr. Peduto pointed to the "progress" that his administration has seen.

"When I took the oath of office January 6, I pledged to change the culture of city government. My administration is following through on that pledge, through the hard work, square-dealing and good faith I promised that day," he said in the release.

Among other things, the report claims Mr. Peduto has "restored relationships with Harrisburg and Washington, D.C."

"Mayor Peduto has taken several trips to both Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. in order to rebuild broken relationships with our partners in the state house and the White House. Building stronger relationships with these leaders benefits all Pittsburghers through greater state and federal investment, access to grants and new programs, and the ability to influence the agenda at the highest levels," the report reads.

It also talks about the Pittsburgh Land Bank. Legislation to create it was passed Monday, and some have credited the mayor for bringing together both sides to compromise on what started as a divisive issue.
