March 13, 2013, Pittsburgh, PA – The coalition of South Hills elected officials who support Bill Peduto for Mayor continues to grow as Senator Wayne Fontana announced his support yesterday.

“The time has come for all the elected officials in the South Hills to work together, as a team, for the betterment of their neighborhoods. Bill Peduto has made the commitment to be part of that team,” said Fontana. “I believe him to be a man of his word. As I remove myself from the Mayor’s race, I stand together with the other elected officials in the South Hills to support Bill Peduto as the next Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh.”

Fontana joins a coalition that includes City Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak, State Representative Erin C. Molchany, City Councilman Bruce Kraus, and County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.

“We have a strong coalition of elected leaders that will help us win the South Hills because this race is not about where you live, it’s about where you stand,” said mayoral front runner Bill Peduto.
