On Easter Sunday, Dave Gillingham heard a loud noise and his house on Riveview Ave. shook. He went out and looked to his left and noticed that part of a wall along the east side of Riverview Ave had collapsed. Borough DAS, Ron Borczyk said that the borough engineer will be out early on Monday morning to evaluate the situation. Police Chief, Matt Sentner said that traffic will be rerouted until vehicle safety is assured. The wall was rebuilt in the 1990's by members of the borough DPW crew. One can assume that the harsh winter contributed to the failure of the wall.

Michalow Earns Support from Leading Organizations

PITTSBURGH, PA – Tom Michalow recently received endorsements from the Steel City Stonewall Democrats, Gertrude Stein Political Club of Greater Pittsburgh, Clean Water Action, and Progress Pittsburgh PAC. These endorsements show increasing support for Tom Michalow within Pennsylvania’s 20th Legislative District with the LGBT, women’s rights, and environmental community.

“I am honored to have received these endorsements. I look forward to working with these organizations supporting Democratic values to better the lives of all people living in Allegheny County. As a representative in Harrisburg, I will be a vocal and visible leader for human rights and the protection of our environment”, Michalow said
The Steel City Stonewall Democrats held their member endorsement April 13th at Cruze Bar in the Strip District.

Tom Michalow is running against Adam Ravenstahl in the May 20th Democratic Primary Election.

The 20th legislative district includes the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Brighton Heights, Northview Heights, Observatory Hill, Polish Hill, Spring Garden, Spring Hill, Strip District, Summer Hill, Troy Hill; parts of East Allegheny and Lawrenceville; the Boroughs of Avalon, Bellevue, and West View; and Parts of Ross Township.

PITTSBURGH, April 22 –State Rep. Adam Ravenstahl, D-Allegheny, received the endorsement of both the Pennsylvania State Education Association and the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers today in his bid for re-election to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. 

“I am honored to have the support of the PSEA and the PFT,” Ravenstahl said.  “Restoring the severe education cuts and investing in our children, our teachers and our schools should be our number one priority.”

The Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers is comprised of roughly 3,000 professionals in the Pittsburgh Public Schools system while the Pennsylvania State Education Association has approximately 180,000 members throughout the Commonwealth.  Both organizations advocate for quality public education and equal educational opportunities for all.

“We need legislators in Harrisburg who are going to fight for our children and our teachers, and that is exactly what Adam has done,” said PFT President Nina Esposito-Visgitis.  “His votes against the devastating education cuts were appreciated by our membership.”

The PSEA and the PFT endorsements will be added to a list of those supporting Ravenstahl that include the Allegheny County Democratic Committee, the Allegheny County Labor Council , the Pittsburgh Fire Fighters and several of his colleagues from the region, including the entire Democratic Leadership team from Allegheny County.

The 20th District includes Avalon, Bellevue, portions of Lawrenceville, Northview Heights, parts of the North Side, Polish Hill, parts of Ross Township, the Strip District and West View.
