DanGilmanDan Gilman, the Democratic Councilman from District 8 in Pittsburgh was selected to join the NewDEAL, a national network that is committed to highlighting innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives.

Senator Mark Begich of Alaska and Maryland Governor (a possible 2016 presidential candidate) Martin O’Malley, the honorary co-chairs of NewDEAL, recognized Gillman’s pro-growth efforts to revitalize Pittsburgh.
