April 16, 2013, Pittsburgh, PA – In response to yesterday’s bombings during the Boston Marathon, Pittsburgh City Councilman and mayoral candidate Bill Peduto has this to say:

“My heart is heavy with the news of the awful tragedy at the iconic Boston Marathon. Not enough can be said about the heroic work of the police, firefighters, paramedics, and ordinary citizens who came to the aid of those who were injured. May we all remain vigilant in this day and age, particularly here in Pittsburgh as we approach our own annual marathon.”
