Bill Peduto has been mayor of Pittsburgh for about six weeks.

That’s not a lot of time – given that it’s a four-year term –

So there are still a lot of items on Peduto’s “to do” list.

And it’s way too soon to decide whether he’s doing a good job or not.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some questions –

About things he’s done –

And things he hasn’t.

Peduto was the “mayor apparent” longer than he’s been in office.

Some wonder why he didn’t spend that time getting organized –

Selecting department heads and top staffers –

So he could roll out his new administration when he took the oath of office.

Instead – Peduto set up a Rube Goldberg process for choosing final candidates for many positions.

It hasn’t prevented criticism of some of his picks –

And important jobs – like Public Safety Director and Police Chief – still aren’t filled.

Now there’s a chance to ask the mayor about what he’s done –

What he plans to do – and when he plans to do it.

It’s called “Ask the Leaders.”

Once a month – starting this Thursday at noon –

Mayor Peduto – and Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald – will be on KDKA Radio for an hour.

They will discuss issues and – more importantly –

Take calls and address your concerns.

You may not always like the answers – but at least you can ask the questions.
