4. Allegheny County Executive Dan Onarato: Dan and I formed a bond when he ran for the county executive position. As we all know he was successful and over the years Dan was a man of his word. There was never an occasion that I asked him for anything for Hop, but I did for a number of people or organizations. He never lied to me, never said yes when he meant no, never would when he knew he would not. His answer would be yes or he would say allow me check something out. Yes he had a word.
5. Pittsburgh City Controller Michael Lamb: He was my choice for mayor before he withdrew, and I was really disappointed, but who knows what the future holds. Michael is honest, trustworthy, capable, and competent and truly loves the city of Pittsburgh and its citizens. I truly believed that he was our best hope for the future of the city of Pittsburgh and he was our best opportunity for the Pittsburgh to become a genuine city of true inclusion.
