Pitt Councilwoman Announces She Won’t Run for Re-Election

rudiakThere’ll be an open City Council seat in the Steel City next year.

According to Chris Potter of the Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak will not run for re-election this year.

“A lot changed for me when my mother passed away,” Rudiak told Potter. “It made me step back and do a lot of reflection. So much of my life has belonged to the community, and it’s been an amazing experience. But most of my family lives in Europe, and I want to rebuild some of those bonds.”

Rudiak was a close ally of Progressive Democratic Mayor Bill Peduto and represents Pittsburgh’s Fourth District. The 4th district is the most competitive in the city and is thus a prime target for anti-Peduto Democrats.

The primary is set for May 16, 2017 and the general election contest will be held on November 7, 2017.

  1. Good. She has been a pain in La Familia’s rectum since she got elected, always questioning our contracts and bond issues with the city. When Mayor O ‘ Gonner let us refinance 600 million in debt bonds, she questioned where the money was going for the water and sewage bond. Duh? It went to the much needed flood protection redesign of Washington Blvd so that there would never be a catastrophe there. It wasn’t our fault that the money got diverted to our lawyer’s fees.

  2. Nick Field must have gone to Penn State too. And he learned under Jerry Sandusky.
    No wonder he can’t tell the difference between Pitt and PGH.
