Marlin Woods, an East Liberty native, launched his campaign on Thursday night with a rally in Highland Park.
His campaign website describes him as a “small business owner, public speak, author, and ordained minister.”
“Customizable solutions by having you articulate to the mayor’s office and how we do that is by gathering you together to the table of discussion,” Woods said during his rally. “The table of collaboration, which is what community looks like.”
State Representative Ed Gainey won the Democratic primary, defeating incumbent Mayor Bill Peduto, and Democratic candidate Tony Moreno won the Republican primary through write-in votes, but has not said if he will accept the Republican nomination.
