Carlisle Files for Seat She Traded for Prison


Bauder, Bob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Twanda Carlisle, 56, of East Hills said she hopes to win back her old seat on City Council, which is held by Councilman Ricky Burgess. Burgess, 57, of North Point Breeze is running for re-election. He won the Democratic Party's endorsement Sunday.
