Pittsburgh can and should shine as a family town, a place to parent.Edit

Pittsburgh is about growing, healing, learning.

In Pittsburgh one learns how to play well with others, and that needs to be a priority we respect -- above all else.

Public dealings and issues that concern public spaces must be handled in a public process, with accountability, openness, votes, and real passions from wide audiences.
