Marita Garrett

Borough of Wilkinsburg Councilwoman, Ward One

​In light of the recent state of economy, there has been a new wave of entrepreneurship spreading across the globe. More than ever, people are thinking "outside the box" and defining their own career path. Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of our community; they aid in community development, social change, and revenue.

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.    To learn more about RAD, go to their website http://www.radworkshere.org .
