The Pittsburgh Democratic Committee will nominate a candidate on Sunday to run for a City Council seat vacated by Patrick Dowd.

Up to 108 committee members in city wards making up Council District 7 will select a nominee during an election from 9 a.m. to noon at the Teamsters Union Temple in Lawrenceville, according to Nancy Mills, who chairs the Allegheny County Democratic Committee, which includes the city committee. So far, two candidates – Tony Ceoffe, 29, of Lawrenceville and Deb Gross, 47, of Highland Park – are seeking the nomination.

Mills said Democrats have until 5 p.m. Friday to notify the committee of their candidacy.

Jim Wudarczyk, 61, of Bloomfield plans to run as an independent for the seat. No Republicans have announced their intention to run.

Dowd, 45, of Highland Park resigned to head up a North Side nonprofit. There are two years remaining on his term.
