Peduto Named to Politico’s Most interesting Mayors List

Peduto5_1Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is being nationally recognized by Politico Magazine as one of America’s most interesting mayors due to his sense of humor, dedication to the city and media skills.

Politico Magazine highlighted Peduto’s humor, including when he made numerous fish puns after a Nashville Predators fan was arrested for throwing a dead catfish on the ice during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Along with his humor, it commended Peduto for rebranding and improving the reputation of the city.

“A self-described ‘student of cities’ who rose to local prominence by championing a bohemian mix of indie art galleries and urban tech centers, Peduto, 52, represents the global aspirations of a city shaking off its smoky past,” the post read.

Peduto was also praised for his social media presence in response to President Trump’s withdrawal of the US from the Paris climate accord.

The flurry of positive press was good for Pittsburgh—and also good for Peduto,” the post read.

Peduto has told some he has larger ambitions than his current position, but has kept those ambitions close.

Peduto is currently running for re-election.  He won in a three way primary with 68.9% of the vote.

  1. The most interesting thing about Bill Peduto is that he doesn’t look anything like that old photo.

  2. “Big Fart” will just be a little dust devil in the wind when La familia puts our girl Chelsa in the next mayor’s race. Too bad she doesn’t have a twin so we can take out phony Fitz too. He’s a goner anyway with no place to run but maybe the locals in West Virginia would welcome the stupid hoopie.

  3. Could be a future PA guv? Or replacement for Toomey in US Senate. That would be an upgrade.

  4. And no Jim Kenney or Ed Pawlowski. My guess is there is a reason those two are not on there. I am sure their press machines are scratching their heads as to why they did not make it.
