Gilman's healthy warchest

Published by James O'Toole on .

     Dan Gilman, a candidate for Pittsburgh City Council District 8, is showing some financial muscle in his bid for the Democratic nomination to succeed his boss, Bill Peduto, in the East End seat.
        His campaign said his annual campaign finance report will show that he raised $57,031 from the time he opened his campaign committee in October through the end of the 2012 reporting period.  The campaign said  he had raised an additional $28,000 this year for a total of more than $85,000.
        Mr. Gilman, a longtime council aide, is competing for the seat against Sam Hens-Greco and Jean Clarke.  Mr. Hens-Greco said his fund-raising was just getting underway and that his year-end report would show that he had raised only a few thousand dollars so far.  Ms. Clark said he had not formed a fund-rising committee until 2013, and thus would not be required to file a contribution report by the Thursday deadline.
