Tuesday night, we made history, and today, we are a step closer to a New Pittsburgh.
Our New Coalition was built from the ground up. It encompasses ordinary Pittsburghers from North, South, East and West. Pittsburghers from labor to environmentalists, from women’s groups to youth, from the LGBT community to a broad base of elected officials. We built our support from every race, gender and corner of this city.
And, we could not have done this without you.
You who knocked on doors, who phone-banked, who donated, who spoke to your family and friends whether in person or through social media. You took the power back from those who have run this city for decades and put it squarely back in the community and the people who live in it.
You saw the potential that Pittsburgh has and know that we have the opportunity—and the responsibility—to build our great city once again.
Together, we will make Pittsburgh the city we know it can be.
