    It’s never too early to start thinking about Election Day. With fewer than five months to go in this year’s gubernatorial race, we asked Pennsylvania residents what would surprise the next governor about their city or community.

    The responses (which can be seen in the video above) are, well, surprising.

    In Allentown, we heard a common theme from residents about how the city is bouncing back from a decades long downturn. 

    In Philadelphia, it was all heart. Determined residents told us that people in the City of Brotherly Love need a second chance and will change for good or bad, with or without the help of the next governor. 

    And in Pittsburgh, Mayor Bill Peduto told us about the next generation of residents building a new Pittsburgh.
