The opponents of candidate Bill Peduto wrongly accuse him of supporting only his city council district ("Ravenstahl Behind Ads Attacking Peduto," May 1). I live outside of Councilman Peduto's district and have often received faster responses from him and his staff than from my own councilman.
Instead of attacking his opponent, Luke Ravenstahl should have adopted Mr. Peduto's use of social media to reach out to the entire city. During the G20 conference, Mr. Peduto regularly dispatched updates on activities between police and protesters. And during Snowmageddon, when Mr. Ravenstahl was relaxing at a ski resort and his city offices were dysfunctional, Mr. Peduto kept us informed about road conditions and emergency services.
As city councilman, Bill Peduto has helped Pittsburghers throughout the city (even though he was only obliged to serve his district). As mayor, Bill Peduto will move the entire region forward.
