Mayor and top administrators go to Perry North to hear ideas, concerns

PITTSBURGH, PA – (May 26, 2014) This Thursday evening Mayor William Peduto and his top staff will meet personally with residents at Riverview United Presbyterian Church in Perry North to hear — and act upon — their ideas and concerns about city issues.

On May 14 the Mayor held his first “Mayor’s Night In” in his office at the City-County Building and on April 7 staged his first “Mayor’s Night Out” at a city recreation center in Beltzhoover. Similar events alternating between city communities and the Mayor’s office will be regularly scheduled through the year.

Holding the sessions reflects the Mayor’s efforts to instill transparency and accountability into City government, and follow such moves as making his daily schedule public, hiring top officials through the public Talent City process, creating a Community Affairs team that meets nightly with neighborhood groups, and creating a Bureau of Neighborhood Empowerment to focus strictly on struggling communities.

WHERE: Riverview United Presbyterian Church, 3505 Perrysville Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa., 15214. (map)
