Frankel: Teamwork brought restoration of Pittsburgh local control

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 12 – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Dan Frankel, D-Allegheny, commended the teamwork that led to today's restoration of local control over Pittsburgh's city finances.

"This is good news for our city and reflects the optimism felt locally for the future of the region. This restoration of local control is the result of the hard work of responsible leadership, not only by Mayor Bill Peduto but also City Council. I thank Governor Tom Wolf for working with the city and with Pittsburgh's representatives and senators in Harrisburg to make this happen," Frankel said.
