Today, I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Former Mayor Sophie Masloff. Sophie was truly one in a million, and this is a huge personal loss for the City of Pittsburgh and all whose lives were touched by her. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the Masloff family in their time of loss. May her memory and legacy never be forgotten.
I was happy to host a Post Agenda today with the Coalition Against Violence. We had a very candid and passionate discussion on ways that the Pittsburgh community can work on resolving problems of violence in our neighborhoods.
Here is the link to the Coalition Against Violence community manifesto that was drafted as part of a greater, collaborative community effort in preventing and controlling gun violence and crime throughout our city and beyond.

Construction will continue for a month, with the park slated to open by the end of August.
