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.
