Tim Murphy (R) and Mark Bolles (D)

I'm digging for more insights on the platforms for Pittsburgh area candidates for US Congress. We are a city that is half of what we used to be. Our state and federal reps throughout the region can either deal with the city in some way(s) or ignore the situations. What is your take on what needs and should be done with the city -- if anything?

Next -- I'm digging for info on what you think about public transportation? In specific ways, what about the plan to put two tunnels under the Allegheny River to extend the light rail (T) in the city to the lower north side to serve the stadiums?

A bulk of that money comes from the feds. But, the local match isn't there and isn't a priority -- so says Dan O (County Exec).

Thanks for your insights.
