City Councilman Bill Peduto will start his Tuesday with a dual labor endorsement -- the United Steelworkers District 10 and the Pittsburgh chapter of the Steelworkers’ Organization of Active Retirees, will join the mayoral candidate for a show of support in the Steelworkers Building, Downtown.
District 10 Director and county Councilman John DeFazio, will be on hand, and if a Peduto press release is to be believed, Jumpin’ Johnny will say, “I endorse Bill Peduto for mayor of Pittsburgh because he is the best choice for our members and for all working families in Pittsburgh.’’
The show of support comes on the heels of Sunday’s uncontested endorsement of city Controller Michael Lamb in the race by the Democrats’ city committee. Mr. Lamb has also collected a Teamsters endorsement while Mr. Peduto has been endorsed by SEIU Local 32BJ, and the laborers District Council of Western Pennsylvania.
Later in the day, both candidates will find out officially who their new opponents are as the deadline for filing nominating petitions in the race comes with the close of business.
