Koger: He wants to "inspire the young black males to see honest change."



Rich Lord wrote the following on April 1, 2008, for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Mr. Koger . . .


He said he wants to win in part to "inspire the young black males to see honest change."

He'd start by pushing for "a constitutionally correct way" to track handguns. He said he wants to bring job-creating development -- but not the kind that is "further isolating the most needy" by hiding troubled neighborhoods behind pretty facades.

He has taught middle school science for the Duquesne City Schools since last year, and prior to that clerked in a law office. He attended the Duquesne University School of Law from 1987 through 1990 . . .

"I think I have experienced some of the things that the most needy have experienced."
