Interactive map demonstrating the low voter turnout in the Democratic Primary Election of the Pittsburgh Mayor

23 May

In this interactive map, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette demonstrates nicely how few registered Democrats bothered to take a few minutes and vote in an election that arguably affects their lives more than…well most other elections.

Click on the map above, or HERE to see, by district, how many people didn’t vote, versus the number that voted for each candidate.

Devastating Port Authority service cuts were announced that it would have to cut services by 35% by September 2.  The above map shows the devastation.

Here’s another map that shows the ACCESS service cuts in pink. Thanks to the ACTC blog for that one.

Here’s some numbers taken from the same blog post (great post btw):
  • 46 of  Port Authority’s 102 routes will be eliminated
  • 40,000 rides will be lost, leaving thousands  of riders stranded
  • ACCESS coverage will be significantly reduced
  • 600 lost jobs
  • 18 park and rides will no longer be served
  • no service past 10 p.m. (with the exception of very few routes )

How sad.

What are the chances that the following maps have anything to do with the current problems that we face and the unwillingness of the state to take this crisis seriously?

Hmmmmm Tom Corbett?

Here’s some more insight and the fact that we’re not alone.

Pittsburgh doesn’t like Senator Pat Toomey (R). But we’re surrounded by a bunch of jags who do.  The further you go, the more you like him.  Ewww.
