Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - Local News - Early Returns And does Patrick Dowd, running for council against incumbent Len Bodack, draw money and volunteers away from his old ally Mr. Peduto, or do their bids complement each other?Depends. Plus, you really need to dig a bit deeper to find out all that is there. The school board race for Dowd's present seat might be a good one too.
On face value, Peduto and Dowd can be great for each other. However, teamwork isn't a strength of either nor with anyone in the D's party. They might swap post-cards. But, I don't see them working hand in hand as they could and should.
