The Future of Pittsburgh with Dan Gilman
A generation ago, major industries departed Pittsburgh, leaving a hollowed out former steel town to find a new way forward. Just a decade ago, the city was veering towards bankruptcy. Today, Pittsburgh has hit a spectacular moment of prosperity. Still, many issues afflict the city, from an overloaded water management system to ensuring every citizen shares in the city’s recent success. What are the immediate issues facing Pittsburgh? How does the city plan for the long-term? City Councilman Dan Gilman, who represents Pittsburgh’s 8th District, discusses these issues, along with campaign finance at the local level and further opportunities for economic development.
