Q & A With Bill Peduto

The Bill Peduto for Mayor campaign contacted me yesterday to ask if Pittsblog would be willing to host some blogosphere Q&A with the candidate. The answer is: Absolutely. And I'm happy to do the same for any and all other mayoral candidates.

Here's the first list of questions that I sent over. Watch Pittsblog for Bill Peduto's responses. If you have questions that you'd like to put to the candidate, send them my way at pittprofessor@yahoo.com.

One: The most pressing issue for Pittsburgh is job growth. The Mayor has limited power in this area. What should the Mayor do to promote job growth in the region? Assuming that the task is really a collaborative one, who else must participate actively in whatever steps you outline? Speak to the long-term as well as to the short-term.

Two: Why should residents of the City be optimistic about the future of Pittsburgh?

Three: What steps should the Mayor take to promote in-migration to the region?

Four: Congratulations. You've won. You've got 60 days to get off on the right foot and make a difference. Identify the first 5 substantive things that you want to accomplish in that time.
