The rent is too damn high. Housing costs are too damn high. Poverty is too damn high.
My name is Carl Redwood, Jr., and I’m running as an Independent to represent District 10 in Allegheny County Council.
Running for the poor and working class. I am running to put people over profits in Allegheny County. A better County is possible. I see a future of housing for all, clean air and water for all, a livable climate for all, and a new vision of health and safety for all. This future will not be built overnight, but let’s try, starting now.
Funded by the poor and working class. I have pledged to refuse donations from fossil fuel companies, health insurance interests, real estate interests, police unions and corporate PACs. A politician cannot put people over profits when their campaign is funded by the profits of powerful corporations. This campaign will be funded by the people.
Power to the poor and working class. To build a County for the working class, especially for our most vulnerable communities, we must organize collective organizations to build solidarity, and exercise democracy along with collective power. I will use my campaign and office to support the organizing of workers’ unions, tenant unions, and a people’s assembly, using both my power as a legislator and as a community organizer. I can’t take on the rich and powerful alone, and I don’t want to. We need power for the many—not the few.
