District 7 City Councilwoman Deb Gross sworn into office
It's official! In a ceremony held on December 6th, in Council Chambers, Deb Gross was officially sworn-in as a Member of Pittsburgh City Council, where she will represent the residents of Pittsburgh’s City Council District 7.
Gross won a mandate victory in a November 5th Council vacated by former District 7 Councilman Patrick Dowd, who resigned to head a non-profit devoted to children’s advocacy. During the ceremony, the oath of office was administered to Councilwoman Gross by Judge Eugene Ricciardi, after which Gross provided brief remarks thanking her family, friends, and supporters.
Father Regis M. Farmer of Bloomfield’s St. Maria Goretti Parish led attendees in an invocation to begin the ceremony and a benediction to officially close the event.
Councilwoman Gross will immediately assume her new role representing the residents of District 7, which includes the neighborhoods of Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, Highland Park, Morningside, Polish Hill, the Strip District, the majority of Friendship, and a portion of Stanton Heights.
Deb and the District 7 team are excited to officially get to work!
