District 4 News
 
Billboard companies need to pay their fair share
Which property owners in District 4 have the special privilege of paying less than $40 a year on property taxes?  
a) You
b) Senior Citizens
c) Disabled Veterans
d) The multi-million dollar billboard industry  
 
If you answered “D”, you are correct! The billboard at the corner of Edgebrook and Rt. 51, the one with my photo on it, was sold for OVER 5 MILLION DOLLARS in 1997 yet pays less than $40 in city and school taxes. I would bet that you pay much more than $40 in property taxes on your home! To top it off, billboards are estimated to reduce their surrounding property values by as much as 30%. 
 
Given today’s hard economic times, it is vital that we close tax privilege loopholes that let corporations off the hook. We all have the responsibility to protect our neighborhoods from crime and neglect. That’s why Council President Darlene Harris and I are fighting to make sure that everyone pay their fair share. We have introduced legislation to hold multi-million dollar billboard companies accountable for the city services that enable their profits. This much needed revenue will pay for City of Pittsburgh police cars, which need to be replaced regularly at a cost of $2-3 million per year.
 
Stand up to the bullying billboard industry and hold the line on our property taxes! Join our public hearing on October 30th at 1:00 PM and tell City Council to pass this legislation to ensure that middle class taxpayers don’t subsidize corporate tax privileges! Registered speakers are given 3 minutes each--if you would like to take part and make a comment, please call 412-255-2138. Questions about the bill? Feel free to call our office at 412-255-2131.
 
Working to make South Pittsburgh a better place, every day
Fall is always a busy time, and this past month has been no exception! I had the pleasure of spending many of my days and evenings out in the neighborhoods, talking to you or your neighbors at various meetings, events, and celebrations! I found some wonderful treasures and delicious food at the Beechview Big Flea, and my staff and I returned to Beechview again to attend the First Annual Harvest Festival. I want to give a big thanks to the Crested Duck Charcuterie for organizing that event, and BREW on Broadway for welcoming my staff and I for the day. We also had a lovely time celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Brookline Block Watch, where we were also joined by Councilmen Bill Peduto and Bruce Kraus.  We’re making waves in South Pittsburgh!
 
• Colteryahn Dairy in Carrick is the only functioning dairy remaining within the City limits. It’s been a community anchor and landmark along Brownsville Road for generations. That’s why  I’m excited to announce my partnership with the Colteryahn Dairy, the Carrick Community Council, Economic Development South, and the Office of County Executive Rich Fitzgerald to redesign the surrounding business district on Brownsville Road around East Meyers Avenue. We will soon contract with an architect to create a new vision for that area, including everything from storefronts to street infrastructure, like sidewalks and landscaping. This is yet another important step toward the revitalization of our great Carrick neighborhood!
 
• I spoke at the Overbrook Community Council (OCC) meeting in late September about other great projects: 
 
Design work is now underway on a major park & ride development on Rt. 51. This work will serve to attract public and private money to build new infrastructure. I carved out the funding for this important design in the 2012 Capital Budget.
 
You may have seen a new look for the Accamando Center of Overbrook (the old Fire Station). We’ve been working with the OCC and Department of Public Works to repair the clock, paint the woodwork, and make other exterior renovations to restore this community gem!  Currently it is a meeting space for many community organizations and home of the Pittsburgh Boxing Club.
 
City Council recently approved zoning changes for the new location of the German Club of Overbrook, which is moving because of the Route 51/88 reconstruction.  The old building is being demolished and a brand new building and parking lot are being built nearby on Underwood Street, which will allow the Club to remain in our neighborhood for years to come. 
 
• I hosted a group of young women from the Ellis School and Chatham University who are learning about political involvement and social change, spoke to the esteemed members of Zonta International, a group that provides scholarships to Pittsburgh Public Schools graduates, and gave a keynote speech about civic leadership to more than 60 incoming members of  Leadership Pittsburgh.
 
• I’ve heard from many of you who have concerns about the safety of our streets and intersections. We work hard and collaborate with other city departments to find solutions to these concerns--like street signage and speed enforcement. Sometimes, though, the best solution isn’t entirely clear or easy. For that reason, I hosted a hearing about safe streets in our neighborhoods. We had a full panel of experts join us, including a school crossing guard, traffic police, members of the Public Works Department, and cycling advocates, to talk about their experience enforcing the laws and designing safe streets. We learned about interesting traffic design and mitigation initiatives proposed by Traffic21 at Carnegie Mellon University. Several members of council joined us and shared my concerns for our streets, and the city’s process for evaluating concerns. It was an excellent start, but there are many more questions left to be answered. I will continue to push for these answers, so that we have a straightforward way to improve our streets. For more information, you can watch the entire hearing online.
 
• I was thrilled to again perform in Off the Record, a musical satire of Pittsburgh politics, which over the past 12 years has raised over $330,000 for the food bank. Jon Delano, Ken Rice, and David Johnson, among others, showed their funny sides, and I hope those of you who were able to attend had as much fun watching it as I did behind the curtains!
 
• Other meetings that I had in the past month... Met with non-profit and business owners concerning the Carnegie Library’s strategic plan... Sat down with  representatives from PNC Bank to discuss investing in South Pittsburgh... Learned about Rebuilding Pittsburgh Together, a group that provides no-cost home repairs to senior citizens who can’t afford the costs on their own--if you’re interested in receiving services or volunteering, call them at 412.922.0953... Was inspired by members of the Bhutanese refugee community living in South Pittsburgh...  Attended the Amen Corner Law Enforcement Awards luncheon that honored Western PA’s bravest police officers, honoring a total of 29 officers as well as recognizing the induction of fallen officers Derek Kotecki and John Dryer into the Law Enforcement Hall of Fame. South Pittsburgh Zone 3 police officers who were recognized for their service include Officer Lawrence M. Connolly and Officer Brendan J. Nee who received the “Starsky and Hutch” award for their fast action to save the life of a man who jumped from the Birmingham Bridge, and Officer Matthew Smith and Officer Angie Lane who received the “To Protect and Serve” award for responding to a call for a domestic assault and murder that led to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect.
Good news you don't hear on the news
As a way to throw a spotlight on the awesome things that are happening in District 4, I sponsor proclamations that are presented on our Tuesday morning meetings. Below are proclamations I sponsored in the past month:
 
October 2. Brookline’s Little League teams have been active for decades--generations, even--but this year, the Rita’s Italian Ice Pinto League softball team shattered those records, completing their second undefeated season. Click here to read the proclamation.
 
October 2. This is the twelfth year that Pittsburgh Newspaper Guild and Pittsburgh Screen Actors Guild have joined forces to put on their Off the Record live performance that pokes fun at the past year’s Pittsburgh events and prominent figures, all while benefitting the food bank. Click here to read the proclamation.
 
October 9. The Brookline Block Watch celebrated its twentieth anniversary and continues to go strong, providing an opportunity for conversation between residents, law enforcement, and elected officials. Who knows neighborhoods better than those of us who live in them? Click here to read the proclamation.
 
October 16. The Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, and as the keystone of their anniversary, they are dedicating a new urban trail that will enhance the education and quality of life for their students. The trail includes an outdoor pavilion, a swing set that can be used by children in wheelchairs, and a simulated crosswalk that can help teach children how to cross the street safely. Click here to read the proclamation.
 
October 16. Spencer United Methodist Church in Carrick is celebrating its 175th anniversary. Their history is rich and fascinating, and their anniversary theme of “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors” has held true since way back when the neighborhood was called Spiketown! Click here to read the proclamation.
 
You do not need a photo ID to vote this November! Voter ID law blocked by judge
In March, the state legislature passed a law that required very specific forms of ID required to vote at the polls in November.  The law sparked controversy and created a lot of confusion, and for that reason I called for a Council hearing which took place on September 12. You can watch that hearing here [http://pittsburgh.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx].
 
But now, due to an injunction issued by Judge Robert Simpson on October 2, the Voter ID legislation is on hold until after this November’s election. Based on that decision, you may be asked for photo ID, but you do not have to show ID to vote as normal. Also, if you do not show ID, you are not required to vote using a provisional ballot. If this happens to you, or if you’re told that you can’t vote at all without a photo ID, call 866.OUR.VOTE (866.687.8683).
 
If you’re voting at a polling place for the first time, though, you will have to show some form of ID (but it doesn’t have to be a photo ID). If you use an ID that doesn’t have a photo on it, it must list your name and current address. The types of ID that you can use are:
 
PA driver’s license or other ID issued by PennDOT
ID issued by a PA or U.S. agency
U.S. passport
Military ID
Student ID
Employee ID
Voter registration card
Gun permit
Recent utility bill
Recent bank statement
Recent paycheck
Recent government check
 
If you have any questions or concerns about voting this year, please give my office a call at 412.255.2131.
District-wide clean-up day scheduled for October 20
Cold weather is right around the corner. Unfortunately, when the leaves fall off the trees and our green hills turn bare, we are often left with piles of unsightly trash and dump sites.
 
We know our neighborhoods are better than this. It doesn’t have to be this way!
 
This is why I’m inviting you join me and hundreds of our neighbors for one of the biggest neighborhood clean-ups we’ve ever seen--this Saturday, October 20, 2012. Neighborhood volunteers will be joined by University of Pittsburgh students and will descend upon three locations in South Pittsburgh--Rt. 51 in Overbrook, Duffland Street in Carrick, and Broadway Avenue in Beechview--to clean up litter and illegal dumping.
 
So join us, on Saturday, October 20, at 11:00 a.m. if you’d like to take part!
 
To volunteer, please RSVP at this link or by calling my office. Breakfast and refreshments will be provided for all volunteers. Gloves, garbage bags, and safety vests will also be provided. Volunteers are asked to wear sturdy shoes and long pants.
 
All you have to do is show up! Mark your calendars today, and please fill out this registration form if you plan to attend! Volunteers should meet at one of these three spots at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 20.
 
Overbrook Clean-Up

Did we mention you should register? Tell your friends to register. Please let us know if you can participate by filling out this registration form.  We’ll need all participants to sign up in advance so we can plan for enough supplies and food. See you on Saturday!
 
Beechview Community Garden is winterizing
Also on October 20 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the folks at the Beechview Community Garden (across from 810 Rockland Avenue)  will be spending their final workday of the season preparing the gardens for winter. There’s lots of work to do, and they would appreciate anyone interested in helping out. All tools will be supplied, along with water and snacks. For more information, email beechviewcommunitygarden@gmail.com.
 
Yard debris pick-up set for November 10
It’s that time when the trees all over the district are shaking loose of their leaves. After you finish raking them, are you buried up to your neck in them? Environmental Services will be picking up leaf and yard debris from all City residents on a special collection on Saturday, November 10. Residents must bag leaves in paper bags only and place them out at your normal refuse collection site. Bags should not exceed 35 pounds, and leaves should not be placed in plastic bags. If you have tree branches and bushes, cut, bundle, and tie them in lengths not exceeding five feet. Tree branches should not exceed four inches in diameter. Please note that City crew will not collect dirt, rocks, stones, cement, manure, lumber, or food waste, and yard debris not meeting the above guidelines will not be collected by City crews.
 
South Hills Judo Club in Carrick offering free open house
The martial arts instill discipline and offer an opportunity for intense physical activity. Have you ever considered learning judo? Carrick’s own South Hills Judo Club is holding a free open house on Monday, October 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for World Judo Day. Come learn about judo, participate in (or watch!) a free class, and enter a raffle to win one month of free tuition!

"Get Stuffed with Love" offers free Thanksgiving meals to those in need

To that end, Pittsburgh’s South Side Rotary Club, Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, South Side Sokol Club, and Giant Eagle will partner to cook, assemble, and deliver Thanksgiving Day meals to those who need them on Thanksgiving Day. Over the past 10 years, this event has gone from feeding 250 people who are homeless, shut-in, disabled, and in need to over 1,500 people--and the numbers keep growing.
 
How can you help? If you know someone in need of a Thanksgiving Day meal, please contact Officer Christine Luffey at 412.488.8425.

A reminder about the City's spay and neuter program
Thousands of cats and dogs come through our City’s animal shelters every year, and only a fraction are eventually adopted by families who can give them a home. The most effective way to work toward all animals having a forever home is to stop adult animals in the wild from giving birth to more youngsters. This is why the City released a spay and neuter program that provides this service for free for City residents. Read more about the program here and download the application here.
Block Watches work!
If you are concerned about crime in your neighborhood, we encourage you to attend your neighborhood block watch meeting. There, you can learn how to organize your closest neighbors and meet people who may have dealt with similar issues elsewhere in the community. This is a chance to meet local officers, officials, and your own neighbors, and to speak up about problems you see and experience every day.
