Today, Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak announced that she is running for Pittsburgh City Controller. She has my complete support.

Natalia Rudiak is one of our young, talented members of council who is making a difference for everyone in Pittsburgh. Natalia was born and raised in Carrick, where she lives. After earning her Master’s Degree from Carnegie Mellon University, she entered the private sector, working to advise local governments on the implementation of a statewide financial management system. On City Council, she chaired the Performance and Asset Management Committee and the Committee on Finance and Law.

Natalia Rudiak is well qualified to serve as our City Controller. And just as important, she shares our vision for a New Pittsburgh. With a proven track record of working every day to improve the South Pittsburgh neighborhoods in her council district, I know that she’ll do the same for all of Pittsburgh.

I’d like to invite you to join me in supporting Natalia Rudiak for City Controller. You can visit her website at to pledge your support.
