Residency referendum passes

Published by Tim McNulty on .

The Pittsburgh referendum on whether city employees -- but mostly police officers -- should be required to be city residents is breezing to huge approval, as expected.

The only question is what will end up with a bigger percentage: Bill Peduto (currently 84%) or the referendum (79%).

And if you're keeping score Republican Josh Wander is waaaay under the Mendoza line with 2,676 votes and half the city precincts counted. Looks like he'll get the fewest GOP mayoral votes in modern Pittsburgh history.
