Bill Peduto on the “coming of age” of Pittsburgh democrats

I chatted with my friend Councilman Bill Peduto about the election outcome and congratulating him.  The Burghosphere has been bursting with analysis of the Peduto impact — the Pedutocrats.

Here's what Bill had to say about it all (I refer to him as Bill on account of us being friends n'at.):

“Thanks, Sue – but it wasn't me – it was a few hundred activist Democrats (the lifeblood of our party) that never stopped campaigning after my announcement.  They went to work for Bruce, Patrick, Heather and some to Brenda.  Interesting to watch my friend Michael Nutter's victory in Philadelphia against the machine and the coming of age of the independent, progressive, reform democrats in Pittsburgh.  Interesting times, indeed.”

I don't have anything to add.  Good night to all.
