Question to mayor: Will there be other economic development opportunities on the North Shore around the new casino?No way. Really?
Answer from mayor: Sure. There is going to be a big strip club opening in the vicinity.
Is this moving our city forward?
Is this how Pittsburgh is to 'stand tall' for the future?
By the way, this is NOT a joke.
Does anyone out there have either the audio or video of this 'presentation?'
This is exactly what I am so hacked off about. The Pitt Dems should have been one of the sponsors of a debate last night. The other sponsors could have been the College Republicans and the College Libertarians, to mention just two. A full-blown debate could and should have been staged. They could have had cameras on the participants. YouTube works! Rather, they held a small meeting where goofy things can get said and hardly disputed. The mayor is ducking his duty in a prime political season. And, the others throughout the community are gracious hosts to provide cover.
Pittsburgh is a smokey city -- still -- in this realm.
Agent Ska, where were you and your camera on the night that a potential strip club was revealed as a good economic development tool by Luke Ravenstahl?
