Let the #Race4PGH7 Begin
|June 17, 2013||Posted by Race for PGH under Blogs, Elections|
It hasn’t been a month since the primary election day, but the burgh blogosphere has been eerily quiet. The political scene has been so quiet that The Pittsburgh Comet had to write a post about the weather last week.
That all changed this morning when Patrick Dowd announced he would be resigning from City Council to head a new nonprofit organization – Allies for Children.

So that means there will be a special election to fill his council seat this fall.
Who will run? Who will sit this one out?
