The correct Fitzgerald

Daily Photo Galleries

Regarding the fate of the August Wilson Center and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto's assertion that “The mission of this center becomes the first criteria; make the creditors whole or nearly whole should be second; and unfortunately Judge Fitzgerald has it flipped” ( “County, city leaders urge removal of Wilson Center court-appointed receiver” ): I point out that a legal agreement (a mortgage) must have priority over a nonprofit organization's mission statement, which is nothing more than hopeful wishes.

Judith Fitzgerald, the court-appointed receiver and former bankruptcy judge, sees the situation correctly.
