Hill District Candidates' Forum

Monday, May 2, 2022 - 5:30pm
1835 Centre Ave , Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Register Here: The Hill CDC and Hill District community partners will be hosting a candidates' forum on May 2, 2022, at 5:30pm at Hill House to discuss pressing issues impacting the Hill District.

Please note that due to changes to the PA legislative boundaries, the Hill District has been split into two state legislative districts, the 19th and 24th. The 19th seat was formerly held by Jake Wheatley, Jr., and the 24th seat was formerly held by Ed Gainey. Both vacated their legislative seats to serve as Chief of Staff to the Mayor, and Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, respectively.

A special election was held on April 5th (last week) to elect representatives to complete former Reps. Wheatley and Gainey's terms. Rep-elects Abney and Covington will complete those terms through December 2022.

It is important to note that this upcoming election on May 17th will likely determine who holds the two seats representing the Hill District for the next full two-year terms starting in January 2023.

DO NOT MISS THIS opportunity to deeply engage the candidates running to be your State Representative in the Pennsylvania State House in this upcoming May 17th Election!

Food and beverages will be provided.

Seating is limited, do not wait to register!
