Sam Hens-Greco '85, an attorney with the firm of Cole & Hens-Greco, P.C., is running for the Democratic nomination in Pittsburgh's heavily populated City
Council District 8.
Hens-Greco said his main interest is gun
violence. He would ask for commitments from council, the new mayor and
police chief to end gun violence, then discuss ways to do that. He
favors hiring more police officers and fostering a better relationship
between police and neighborhood residents.
"If we can end gun violence, it would transform the quality of life and safety in the city for everybody,” he said.
Hens-Greco previously worked as a legal services attorney for University Legal
Services in Washington. He was also the Chair of Pittsburgh's 14th Ward Democratic
Committee but has stepped aside while running for council.
