PITTSBURGH, PA- Community leader, small business owner, and born and raised Pittsburgh resident, Marlin D. Woods of East Liberty, will formally announce his candidacy for Mayor on Thursday, June 10th, 2021, at 6:00pm, at the Highland Park Reservoir in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Marlin Woods is a leader and believes that leadership is a responsibility of selfless service, fostering a collaboration of ideas and empowering minds that represent every corner of Pittsburgh. Listening to the resident, understanding the opportunities and making decisions for each individual resident in all 90 communities is his mission. Consistency, accountability and transparency are examples of the work he believes it takes to achieve success. These are the values Marlin lives by every day to secure a quality of life that will leave an example for generations. With a belief that responsibility raises our sights and forges our path, Marlin will lead Pittsburgh to a New Beginning as he becomes Mayor in the upcoming election.
