Pittsburgh Promise Exec. Director On Franco

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — With Franco Harris voluntarily stepping aside as the board chairman for the Pittsburgh Promise, Saleem Ghubril, the executive director of the scholarship program, came to his defense while talking with NewsRadio 1020 KDKA’s Robert Mangino.

Ghubril talks with Mangino about Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s call for Harris to resign, and tells Mangino that the Pittsburgh Promise board agreed unanimously during a meeting Thursday night that Harris should stay, without a single member calling for him to step aside.

    the mayor, and I use that term lightly, needs to appologize to Franco, his letter was very low and mean spirited.

  2. 2059 says:

    Franco is a man that is the fabric of Pittsburgh. He should stay on the Promise board because the Children of Pittsburgh need him and we all need a man like him.

  3. Gerry says:

    Ravenstahl has not moral high ground to stand upon. He is looking up from a much lower perch when it comes to ethical behavior compared to Franco Harris. Harris is deeply attached to Paterno and is protected by free speech to express those beliefs. When will Ravenstahl resign?
