Riley Mahon

Riley (he/him) has extensive experience with the Green Party despite his young age, serving as GPoAC Media Coordinator, delegate to the Green Party of PA, GPPA Steering Committee member, Green Party US alternate delegate, co-chair of Connor Mulvaney’s campaign for Pittburgh City Council, and even running for school board himself!

Riley is very passionate about growing the Green Party into a force for change in Allegheny County, and he is experienced in running campaigns, participating in actions, and acting as a liaison to other similar groups. He is fully committed to the cause of building the Green Party, ready for the responsibility, and Riley believes that the GPoAC is at a point now where we can set fairly ambitious goals for outreach, inreach, fundraising, and candidate slates in local elections.
