Young Democrats announce endorsements

Posted By on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 1:26 PM

The Young Democrats of Allegheny County have announced their endorsements in the upcoming May primary. The endorsees are:

  • County Executive Rich Fitzgerald
  • County Controller Valerie McDonald Roberts
  • County Council 6 Steven Hvozdovich
  • County Council 10 Bill Robinson
  • County Council 11 Barbara Daly Danko
  • City Controller Michael Lamb
  • City Council 1 Darlene M. Harris
  • City Council 3 Bruce A. Kraus
  • City Council 5 Corey O’Connor
  • City Council 7 Patrick Dowd
  • City Council 9 Lucille Prater-Holliday

For Common Pleas Court, while there are only two slots availalbe, there was a tie for second place, so the Young Dems backed three candidates: Michael Marmo, Leah Williams-Duncan and Alex Bicket.

The Dems also backed Hugh McGough for the District Magistrate seat in the East End -- the one outgoing councilor Doug Shields is gunning for. They also endorsed Dara Ware Allen in District 2 of the city school board.

There'll be more election-related material in this space a little later today -- along with a guide to upcoming political protests. Stay tuned!
