Mayor Bill Peduto will take part in an "Ask Me Anything" online forum Thursday evening billed as the first of its kind for Reddit.com, a news, entertainment and social networking site.
To ask questions or follow the action, go to www.reddit.com/r/pittsburgh/ between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The mayor will field questions and route them to department directors and chiefs for follow-up answers from a computer-training room on the sixth floor of the City-County Building on Grant Street.
Mr. Peduto participated in a Reddit.com forum a year ago when he was running for mayor,
"According to Reddit, this local government AMA with representatives from each major department participating is a first for the 9-year-old social networking and news site," the mayor's office said in a news release.
The online forum is the latest in a series of public events by Mr. Peduto to field questions and solicit input from Pittsburghers, joining "Mayor's Night Out" meetings in Beltzhoover and Perry North and a pair of "Mayor's Night In" events in his office Downtown.
