Journalists frequently write about the working class, but is anyone writing for them? Because “[e]conomic hardship does not mean the absence of joy, love, pleasure, duty, care,” and stories — and representation! — are powerful.

Swissvale Resident since -1999
Hi, my name is Douglas Connor. I’ve been a resident of Swissvale since 1999. My family have been longtime residents and members of Union Baptist Church of Swissvale (Grandma, Rosetta Harp). I have witnessed the changes that have taken place and I’ve seen a community ill-equipped to deal with these changes: also, a reluctance to adjust. Going forward our community faces many tough challenges toward change, but the obstacles and challenges we face are not insurmountable. It will take time and effort from everyone to change, but by working together, we can make our neighborhood a model community. We deserve a safe, clean and wholesome community that we all can be proud of. Vote for me if you support:
Activities and Youth Employment for the Borough
Civilian Police Review Board
Environmental Safety and Health
Community Clean-up and Beautification Initiatives

Bush were regularly characterized as such by their haters – Trump’s emergence on the national political scene comes at a very peculiar moment in US history. In […]
