Meet William Reeves!
Hello, my name is William Reeves. I have been a member of the Pittsburgh community since 2017. A first generation Cuban – American & Pacific Islander, originally from New York, I have now made Pittsburgh my home. I have been a resident of the South Side Slopes since April of 2021.
One of the many reasons I am running for City Council was witnessing the disinvestment in our BIPOC youth and how that prevented our youth from reaching their full potential in our Hilltop communities. Despite lack of support, the organization, A Giving Heart and various Duquesne University tutors including myself, worked to provide the tools for them to become successful. In addition, giving them a safe space to socialize and learn from each other.
Through my professional work at Casa San Jose, a community resource center for Latino migrants, I have organized the community to advocate for themselves on issues that affect them on a daily basis. I have met with legislators on all levels of governments to achieve this. I strive to ensure no matter where you come from, who you believe in, and what you look like, everyone has the tools to be prosperous in the City of Pittsburgh.
My family’s experiences and values have taught me to be a fighter and advocate for what we believe in. I will be a fighter and advocate for all neighborhoods where disinvestment has taken place over the previous administration on day one as your city councilman.
