14th Ward Independent Democratic Club Endorses Mayor Peduto

The Pittsburgh 14th Ward Democratic Club (14WIDC) is the oldest continuously-operating independent Democratic club in the country. It’s comprised of members who believe in progressive, traditional Democratic Party ideals — many of whom come from activist backgrounds working for peace, justice, economic equity, civil rights, equal rights, and other issues. On Sunday, they held their Endorsement Election Forum and endorsed the Mayor, “affirming his handling of several opportunities and challenges thus far.” Thank you, 14WIDC!
