Pittsburgh's Mayoral Candidates Weigh In One Week Before the Primary

Haldan Kirsch
90.5 WESA

Former state Auditor General Jack Wagner, City Councilman Bill Peduto, and State Representative Jake Wheatley recorded a public radio mayoral forum Tuesday night in front of a live audience at the WESA/WYEP Community Broadcast Center.

With the help of listener submissions, WESA's Kevin Gavin asked the candidates a range of questions: How would you address large tax exempt nonprofits? What would you look for in a new police chief? How do we improve public transit for Oakland and Downtown? The candidates weighed in at one of the last  public forums before the May 21st primary.

GUESTS: City Paper Editor Chris Potter and Pittsburgh Comet blogger Bram Reichbaum offer post forum analysis and reaction on Essential Pittsburgh.
