Hi, my name is Douglas Connor. I’ve been a resident of Swissvale since 1999. My family have been longtime residents and members of Union Baptist Church of Swissvale (Grandma, Rosetta Harp). I have witnessed the changes that have  taken place and I’ve seen a community ill-equipped to deal with these changes: also, a reluctance to adjust. Going forward our community faces many tough challenges toward change, but the obstacles and challenges we face are not insurmountable.  It will take time and effort from everyone to change, but by working together, we can make our neighborhood a model community. We deserve a safe, clean and wholesome community that we all can be proud of. Vote for me if you support:
