Mayor Bill Peduto has jet setted in the name of Pittsburgh more than any other mayor of this city.Harrisburg and Washington, D.C., are his most frequent destinations, but his current trip to London and France, where he was speaking at a conference, is the eighth international trip of his first term. He’s using the five-day conference to network with business leaders and government officials and sell The Pittsburgh Story.For locals, it’s a familiar tale: Rust Belt steel town turns thriving tech hub, eds and meds, et cetera.
