Thank you for being part of the growing changes in our communities by supporting the Ward One Wilkinsburg Community Conversation series. Your continued participation is helping to improve neighborhoods not only in Ward One, but throughout the Borough.

​The objective of the Community Conversation series is to encourage and empower Wilkinsburg residents with knowledge of the resources available to take control and improve their neighborhoods.
Without you, there would be no conversation to start action.

I hope the enthusiasm of speakers Code Enforcement Director Dan Friedman and GTECH's Evaine Sing with the information provided inspires you make our neighborhoods even better. It was great to have residents Ellie Newman and Klara Brown share their community gardening experiences with us.

I have been selected to serve on the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD) Citizens Advisory Board. Being a voice for the community is a commitment I take seriously.
