PITTSBURGH, PA – The Committee to Elect Mayoral Candidate Marlin Woods will hold a VIP Reception on July 22nd, 2021, with host and special guest former Steeler Merril Hoge.

“I have known Marlin for nearly a decade; several things stood out when I first got to know him.
He has worked for and earned everything he has,” Meril Hoge said. “He believes in self-evaluating as his first action; he then makes the correct changes, makes a plan, and attacks.”

Merril Hoge is currently an author and inspirational speaker, endorsing Woods’ campaign for Mayor of Pittsburgh. In addition to his speaking and writing endeavors, Hoge is also an active member of the Pittsburgh community. Alongside Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, Merril has hosted the Hoge Ward Celebrity Golf Classic for Children over the last 12 years to raise funds and awareness for the programs of the Highmark Caring Foundation.

“He has integrity; he believes in being accountable along with being loyal and fair! He has high moral standards and is willing to work for things. Some call it old school; I call it the only school. Marlin has displayed all this in every environment he enters. His leadership skills, along with his passion, are the perfect mixture for the city he loves. That is why I’m supporting Marlin Woods for the 2021 Mayoral Candidate of Pittsburgh.”

The VIP Reception will be held at Fogo De Chao Pittsburgh, located at 525 Smithfield St., from 5:30-7:30. Complimentary parking, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a signature drink called “the Marlin” are included. Donations to The Committee to Elect Marlin Woods are requested for admission to the event with a recommendation of a minimum of $250. All checks and contributions should be made out to The Committee to Elect Marlin Woods and presented at the event.
