Among the supporters at Mayor Bill Peduto’s primary election night victory party was Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.
“We've had a good relationship for a long time,” Fitzgerald said. “We talk all the time … we have a very similar outlook in how we try to govern.”
Fitzgerald has been county executive since January 2012, two years longer than Peduto has been mayor, and he's looking forward to continuing to work together.
“It works better for the region when that happens,” Fitzgerald said.
