The Coffee With Show was given the incredible opportunity of speaking with City Councilman Dan Gilman. Dan Gilman is currently serving his first term as a Pittsburgh City Council member and has great pride in representing Pittsburgh’s 8th Council District. Gilman was first elected to Council in 2013. Prior to serving as a Council Member, he worked for a decade as the Chief of Staff to then-City Councilman and now Pittsburgh’s Mayor Bill Peduto. Councilman Gilman is a champion for growth, development, innovation and education in Pittsburgh and offers a wealth of exciting news to share with us on the show.
As a Councilman, Gilman is consistently regarded as the voice of younger Pittsburghers who are redefining the City as a place of burgeoning growth and endless potential. Gilman and is continually recognized for his tireless advocacy on behalf of Pittsburgh’s technology boom – his activism has helped to bolster business development and innovation in Pittsburgh. Councilman Gilman is perhaps the single most active and effective proponent of Pittsburgh as a nationwide hub for entrepreneurship and business growth.
Gilman is proactive in passing legislation that best benefits the City and its residents. In his time as a Council member, he has passed many pieces of critical legislation. His work has resulted in prohibiting perpetrators of illegal hillside dumping from bidding on or participating in city contracts, in providing real workplace solutions for pregnant city works experiencing pregnancy discrimination, and in developing non-discrimination policies in Pittsburgh’s Authorities.
Beyond his legislative work, Councilman Gilman is a champion for education. He has been organizing a diverse group of advocates who are working to fight hunger throughout city schools by operationalizing a citywide backpack feeding program. He has also been convening quarterly meetings of all the school principals in his district to discuss issues of importance to both the City and its schools, and to forge working relationships across schools and neighborhoods.
