Find out the candidates' views on issues vital to our neighborhoods and community development Thursday, April 11, 6-8PM, at the Union Project - 801 N. Negley Ave. 

Hors d'ouevres and beverages will be provided. 

For more information and to RSVP, please email

For the first time in over a decade, Pittsburgh's wide-open mayoral primary puts us at a crossroads at a critical point in our rebirth.  But what are our candidates' positions on issues most relevant to neighborhoods – the lifeblood of our city?  How will they support, equitably and transparently, the revitalization and stabilization of our neighborhoods and invest in them?  Please join us on April 11 to find out.


Candidates will be asked a series of questions regarding:

-          Equitable disposition of city funds and resources;

-          Their view on land use, development, and integration of neighborhood plans into PLANPGH;

-          How they would support and enable transit, bike, and pedestrian enabling and affordable community development;

-          Transparency and equity in community development processes and resource allocation;

-          Public safety

-          City process modernization and streamlining, and;

-          Leadership and capacity within agencies and authorities and what restructuring they see as necessary to build prosperity.


Please contact Chris Sandvig at or 412-391-6732 x208 with questions or to RSVP.
