Our goal at the HPCC is to function in an unbiased and non-partisan manner for all of Highland Park. We strive to have good relationships will all candidates and elected officials so that we can ably serve the community. Per our bylaws, the HPCC has not and will not be endorsing any candidate for any office in the City of Pittsburgh. We instead prefer to provide a forum for our members and friends in the communities surrounding our neighborhood to meet all candidates and develop their own opinions.
