Wagner to make major announcement soon?

My sources have informed me that State Representative Chelsa Wagner is getting closer to announcing her run for mayor. The level of buzz and encouragement being generated by Ms. Wagner's potential candidacy is even surprising to this true believer. I am hearing reports that people across the city are putting out feelers for Chelsa. Rumor has it that Chelsa is being courted by some real heavy hitters who are running out of patience with the current administration. Whatever you are doing, keep doing it. We are making it happen, let's keep the momentum going.

What i'm hearing out there:
  • Chelsa is a polished young professional
  • Chelsa's office is responsive and effective
  • Chelsa is a hardworker
  • Chelsa is visible and active in the community
  • Chelsa is knowledgeable about the issues and policy

Let us here at Draft Chelsa know what you're hearing out there? Put it in the comment section.

Breaking News!!!

NO CALL NO SHOW #4: A blogger friend of mine told me the Vulnerable Luke Ravenstahl has now successfully stood up the entire democratic ticket. Back in June, the Vulnerable Luke Ravenstahl was MIA when Senator Barack Obama acknowledged him at an event at CMU. I heard that VP Nominee Senator Joe Biden acknowledged him at a delegation breakfast and he was MIA again. Look for those federal dollars to start rolling in!!!

Now back to the current program: Check out for some good interviews with Chelsa from the DNC in Denver

In the meantime: keep up the encouragement and keep making signs and buttons.

I don't think being a "hardworker" is a thing... but good post.

The question is is she making a run no matter what, or is she blowing her trumpets to clear the field case of a free-for-all?

The city budget is coming up. That will be interesting. A good time to look strong.

Who on earth is Chelsea Wagner?

Per her bio (, she has no experience worthy of the name that qualifies her to be a candidate for Mayor. Being an attorney, I can testify that a legal background does not make one a strong executive.

Which is not to say that Luke Ravenstahl is the ideal Mayor for Pittsburgh. On the contrary. But let us not just rush to support someone in the mayoral race who happens to mouth some good slogans, but doesn't seem to have much in the way of experience. That is the fastest way to irrelevance.
