I am curious as to what qualifications Lynn Swann is bringing to the table with his bid for a congressional seat. I am confidant that he is a good person and an excellent citizen, how does that transfer into turning PA especially Pittsburgh around. We need someone who can attract new business , renovate our region, retain our population and sale our assets to the world. Despite his notoriety , I am not sure Mr Swann can achieve any of these goals. As federal dollars are being spent elsewhere Pittsburgh is still sitting in the slow lane.
