Jim Roddey won't sign my petition to allow me onto the ballot for Mayor, City of Pittsburgh

For the past few days, I've been calling upon Jim Roddey to sign my petition so I can get onto the ballot for mayor, City of Pittsburgh, as a Republican. Roddey is a city resident who is a Republican.

Word came to me in a phone call from one of his office workers that Roddey would NOT be signing my petition. He turned me down because of my stance on WQED and WQEX 16. They wanted to sell of the public TV station to a religious broadcaster. I don't think that is a good idea. Roddey has been on the board at QED. QED is in a lot of debt now. QED wanted to sell off the broadcasting rights (public airwaves) and keep the money itself.
