Anthony was born and raised in Beechview, where he attended Pittsburgh Public Schools, and after graduating went into the roofing business. After mastering the trade, Anthony decided to venture out on his own, and at the age of 30, founded Coghill Roofing Co. in 1996.
Wanting to get more involved in the community, in 2005 he took a position in public service working as a Constituent Liaison for State Senator Wayne Fontana. In 2010, he was elected as an Allegheny County Democratic Committeeman and after being re-elected to a second term in 2014, Anthony was nominated and elected by the Committee and now serves as the Chairman of the 19th Ward, only the third person to do so in the past 60 years.
In 2017, Anthony was honored to be elected to Pittsburgh City Council representing the South Hills’ neighborhoods of Beechview, BonAir, Brookline, Carrick, Overbrook, and Mt. Washington, where he has been able to further dedicate himself to serving the needs of the residents of District 4.
Anthony is the proud father of a beautiful daughter, Kelli, who loves to travel the world and is currently a communication specialist at Coghill Investment Strategies. He is also engaged to the love of his life, Miss Lisa Orlando. Lisa has partnered with Anthony and has supported him in his many political endeavors over the years and is so very proud of his many accomplishments and successes, as he is of hers!
