Sabrina Saunders Mosby, president and CEO, Vibrant Pittsburgh RELATED STORY >> Ed Gainey gives victory speech in race for Pittsburgh mayor
Matt Smith, president, Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce
“As a life-long Pittsburgher, leader and a Black person of color, Mayor-elect Gainey’s historic victory creates a sense of optimism about the future course of our region. Gainey proved possible what people from many of our communities, including myself, could previously only imagine — becoming the first Black mayor of Pittsburgh. Gainey consistently focuses on the ‘unity’ in CommUNITY, which is the kind of thinking that can propel our region ahead. I look forward to working with him to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive city.”
“The Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference, looks forward to working with Mayor-elect Gainey – the first African American mayor of the City of Pittsburgh – and his administration to promote inclusive policy initiatives for growth that enable all sectors of our economy to flourish. These include our long-term, established business anchors and the rapidly emerging, high-velocity sectors which generate broad-based employment opportunities for all. We are eager to work with the new administration to catalyze economic growth that leads to a broader and more robust tax revenue base, allowing for key investments in infrastructure, parks, public health, technology and more – all on a path to ensuring that our businesses and people thrive.”
Esther Bush, outgoing president and CEO, Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh
“We congratulate Mr. Gainey on having achieved this great opportunity for the City of Pittsburgh. As Mr. Gainey’s success will be Pittsburgh’s success, we enjoin citizens, corporations, organizations and entities large and small to work with the new mayoral administration toward building a city whose inhabitants have equitable access to health, housing, education, employment and wealth-building. It takes all of Pittsburgh to make Pittsburgh the exceptional city it is destined to become.”
