Steelers, Penguins CEOs for Wagner

Published by Tim McNulty on .


More Pittsburgh heavy-hitters are joining the Jack Wagner for mayor team.

Steelers CEO Art Rooney II and Penguins CEO David Morehouse are among those co-hosting a $1,000-per-person fundraiser for Wagner on Monday, and like many others backing the former Auditor General are former backers of Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. Rooney hosted a similar fundraiser in November for Ravenstahl and Morehouse was one of the outgoing mayor's biggest contributors. At a development forum yesterday Wagner told the crowd the two main principals from Walnut Capital (who were also Ravenstahl supporters) are also backing him.

In other mayoral news Wagner is set to join fellow candidates Bill Peduto, Jake Wheatley and A.J. Richardson at the Pittsburgh Black Political Convention in Larimer.
