Fetterman Named to Atlantic’s “Brave Thinkers” List

Braddock Mayor John Fetterman has been named to The Atlantic’s list of “Brave Thinkers.”

Fetterman and his efforts to revitalize Braddock, attract artists and businesses, and advocate for forgotten places like Braddock, have gained national media attention.

Sadly, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center announced last week it will close UPMC Braddock, the community’s hospital. It’s another blow to a community that has suffered greatly, just as there were some positive things happening.

Thanks to Rust Wire reader Alex Parker for bringing the Atlantic cover story to our attention.
