Mayoral Maps and More - Battle for 90

So last weekend I saw Mayor Ravenstahl on KD/PG being pretty definitive that he was running for reelection, and today a big flyer in the mail from Councilman Peduto looks that sure looks like he is running as well.  So I guess a race is on. 

So without any other parsing for now, I figure a few folks out there might be curious on past Pittsburgh mayoral primary history.  Below is just cut and paste of past posts I could find quickly. There are probably more relevant posts parsing past elections buried in the archives.

I need a theme for any political parsing. Since it's not an electoral system I can't quite crib off of Silver and call it 538.  Looking at the maps I continue to be struck by how much neighborhood definitions matter.  So maybe this will be the battle for 90, the current 'official' count of City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

Yeah, but how about Wagner/Mosley buying a cushy house in Sq. Hill for a cool $350k? Must be nice on the guvment salary these days.

Since I only delete the most truly egregious of comments I will leave that up there.. but if anyone is wondering, I can't imagine a comment more irrelevant to the post at hand.

I really don't care who anyone supports, but there must be better places to gratiuitously slam public officials than here?? At the very least, why not put a name on it??

Weird, indeed. I could be wrong, but aren't city council salaries rather disappointing? A few years back I think it was only around $60K? I could be wrong though.

Personally, I would take 60K, even if it is, by someone's measure, "disappointing". I would call it "respectable", since it's higher than local median household income.

Anyway, referencing city council salary is a bit off base since Chelsa is county controller (a six-figure salary, or nearly that much, salary) and Khari has never held elected office.

However, I agree with the first commenter that as long as we're talking local politics and neighborhood allegiances that it's at least interesting to note, for those who don't follow the Sunday real estate listings, that the county controller--a long-time southern neighborhoods resident--has decamped to North Point Breeze (not Squirrel Hill, but still in the 14th Ward). The Mosley side of the family probably had something to do with the decision to relocate and, let's face it, the East End is more fun.

is strange... most of the anonymous comments I get (which I do delete) are redirects for Viagra ads.

Not that this is related too much to the mayoral election, but its interesting to note about city council salaries. While council members themselves are paid a fair salary, and as is practically every other city employee, city council staff members are paid at a pretty low rate, considering each member of council only has $70K or so to allocate to staff, and it typically requires three members to adequately assist in constituent issues, policy analysis, and general office management, as well as representing the council member at various functions around the city.
