Good morning, I am Glenn A. Walsh of 633
Royce Avenue, Mt. Lebanon.
Today, I am representing no formal organization.
Today, you will be asked to support self-determination by Pittsburgh city
neighborhoods. That is the real issue.
Specifically, today you will be asked to support
self-determination for the Mt. Washington
neighborhood, by supporting the veto of the rezoning of a property on Virginia
Avenue, issued last week by Mayor
Tom Murphy. By this veto, the Mayor has shown that he supports
self-determination of neighborhoods.
If self-determination for the Mt. Washington
neighborhood is not supported in this Council today, where will this all end?
One day, there will be a neighborhood in your district that wishes
self-determination. Will their pleas also be ignored by this Council?
Self-determination by Pittsburgh city
neighborhoods, by itself, is a prime reason to support Mayor Tom Murphy’s veto
