We’re just one week and one day out from the Democratic Primary Election on Tuesday, May 16th! This is your last chance to hear a candidate forum, attend a fundraiser, or to sign up to volunteer for the final push. Here are all the ways you can help in this final week.
Hear All the Mayor Has Accomplished in the Latest Podcast
In the eighth installment of “Talking Pittsburgh w/ Mayor Peduto,” and on the eve of the May 16 election, Megan Fair discusses the various accomplishments – as well as the highs and lows – of Mayor Peduto’s first term in office. We also hear his vision for leading Pittsburgh over the next four years, and the goals and work still ahead. You can listen to this ten-minute podcast here.
Planned Parenthood Endorses Mayor Peduto
Just as they did in 2013, Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania has endorsed Bill Peduto for Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh. With all the threats coming from Washington, it’s more important than ever for Planned Parenthood to have an ally in City Hall. Thank you PPWP for your support!
