Voters will head to the polls Tuesday in Adams, Franklin, Cumberland and York counties to choose a replacement for retired Republican Sen. Richard Alloway, in a race marred by controversy over one of the candidate’s social media posts.

Pittsburgh District 7 and 9 candidates come together for a resident driven forum

In a month Pittsburgh City Council members up for reelection will largely have their fates decided in the primary election. The race consists of Democrats facing off with other Democrats. Short of challenges in the general election in November, who takes the primary takes the council seat. But before voters head to the ballot box, Pittsburgh United, a local advocacy group, hoped to give voters a closer look at the candidates.

On Monday night candidates in the races for District 7 and District 9 came together for an audience-driven forum at Repair the World to answer voters’ questions about what they had to offer.
