OpenPittsburgh.Org is the election committee and supporting organization for the Open Government Amendment to the Pittsburgh City Charter.   In the years since its founding in 2003, OpenPgh.Org has worked to promote the concept and develop logistic support for a citywide Referendum by which the public could ratify the Amendment.   During that time, the Amendment itself has had its wording reviewed and revised a number of times to incorporate the input from citizens who provided valuable suggestions.

The Open Government Amendment Election Committee and OpenPittsburgh.Org's Board consists of:

  • David Tessitor, Chair
  • Hal Dixler, Treasurer
  • William Lawrence III
