“Confronting Our Water Challenges Head On” Podcast
Recognizing that ensuring the safety of our water is one of the most important things that a mayor can do, this week’s podcast is devoted solely to the current issues with the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA). The podcast includes clips from Friday’s public meeting with the Blue Ribbon Advisory Panel appointed by Mayor Peduto, as well as a discussion with the Mayor. The podcast covers how we got here and both short and long term strategies to deal with the crisis. Click here to view the four minute podcast.
In April polling, Mayor Peduto continues to build on his commanding lead over both Darlene Harris and Rev. John Welch. In a 3-way matchup, the Mayor has the support of 61% of voters, followed by Darlene Harris at 12% and John Welch at 8%. Only 19% of voters remain undecided — dropping from 24% last month.
