There’s less than a month to decide — who should be the Democratic candidate for mayor of Pittsburgh and run unopposed in November?
To make sure you can ask your questions of the candidates (yes, you!), The Incline has pulled together a list of mayoral debates, forums and campaign events before the May 16 primary, where you can see councilmember Darlene Harris, incumbent Mayor Bill Peduto and Rev. John Welch.
If you want to add the events to your calendar, subscribe to The Incline’s Decision 2017 Google Calendar. Bonus: It’s the same calendar we launched in the fall before the presidential election, so if you’re already subscribed, no need to to sign up again.
WTAE partnered with The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh for a live TV debate. The event will air commercial-free on WTAE and will be streamed live online. It will air again at 5 p.m. Saturday on WTAE.
