I come from a small city in Northeast Ohio which has seen population decline for decades. I have also lived in a small, Ohio village; in Copenhagen, Denmark; in Ohio’s capital city; and now in Pittsburgh.
Every city is different. Every city has problems and opportunities. And every city must understand how to meet residents’ needs within their circumstances.
It is this last challenge that inspires me. Residents of all cities deserve a decent place to live. I want to make sure that happens.
