  • Casinos: The battle for a Community Benefits Agreement Moves to the North Side

    On Sept. 15, Pittsburgh UNITED kicked off its second grassroots campaign in front of a bank of TV cameras. The foundation-funded economic-justice group vowed to strive for a Community Benefits Agreement for North Side residents from the casino's builder, PITG Gaming.

And that bargain, forged with the Northside Leadership Conference, may make it hard for Pittsburgh UNITED to achieve its goals.
  • City Government: Mayor finds the most talented officials in America close to home

On Sept. 13, Ravenstahl accepted the resignation of just two of them. But despite the nationwide search that he launched at the time -- a search that yielded hundreds of applicants, the mayor said -- Ron Graziano, the chief of building inspections, and Greg Tutsock, the executive director of the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, were not replaced.
