Pittsburgh 14th Ward Democratic Committee held a forum for Allegheny County Council District 11 candidates Wednesday July 8 in Squirrel Hill. Terri Klein, Audrey Glickman, Kimberley Kaplan, and Paul Klein spoke about why they were running and answered questions from the audience, who included many people from the community at large in addition to 14th Ward Committee members and 14th WIDC members. Read more on the Post-Gazette here.

A SPECIAL ELECTION BY COMMITTEE MEMBERS WITHIN DISTRICT 11 will be held to elect 1) the person to serve out the rest of Barbara's term, and 2) the nominee to stand for election for a new term.

This will be held on Sunday, August 2 at the Pittsburgh Fire Fighters IAFF Local No.1 Union Hall, 120 Flowers Avenue in Hazelwood from 10 AM to 2 PM. Again, the AC Democratic Committee rules state that all Ward Officers within District 11 AND Democratic Committee members who represent Voting Districts within AC Council District 11 are eligible to vote.

 

District 11 was thoughtfully and independently represented by Barbara Daly Danko until her unfortunate passing on May 6, 2015. Her energy, insight, and independent spirit will be missed by all who knew her.

LINDA TIRADO, Author of HAND to MOUTH, spoke at Colfax School on April 18th at the Club's annual fund-and-awareness-raiser. 

See excerpts from her talk here and here.

Tirado’s accidental essay, “Why I Make Terrible Decisions, Or, Poverty Thoughts,” has been read more than six million times. A year after she wrote it, she’d gone from working as a diner cook on the night shift to speaking at the London School of Economics and Harvard during her first book tour. She speaks on power and money and dignity, and what it means to live with very little of any of them in the wealthiest country on Earth. Out of the kitchen now, Tirado flips class conventions on their head wherever she finds them.
