PRESS RELEASE - March 19 campaign office grand opening


Friends of John C. Welch

Mayoral candidate John C. Welch opening campaign office Sunday

Demonstrates continued momentum to connect and engage with the citizens of Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, March 15, 2017 – Friends of John C. Welch for Mayor of Pittsburgh will host an open house at the campaign’s new office in Garfield this Sunday at 2:00 p.m., and the public is invited to join the celebration.

To kick off the grand opening, the event will offer food, games, door prizes, and a meet-and-greet with Welch, who is set to make a brief speaking appearance. Those who attend also will have a chance to get involved with the campaign as a volunteer and participate in on-site training exercises.

“The decision to choose the East End for our headquarters was easy,” said Welch. “We wanted to be close to the beast, where most of the development is taking place.”

The office will serve as a base of operations for committee members and volunteers to organize in and work out of, and as a location that citizens are welcome to stop by if they would like to seek information about Welch’s campaign as the May primary election approaches.

“The time is now,” said Welch. “I’ve been highly encouraged and motivated by the words of support I have received from many people across the city that I’ve met throughout my campaign. I look forward to earning the support of more voters in our movement to address the issues that have long held our neighborhoods back from their true potential.”
