Personal story. We had a building inspector at our house today -- just about the same time of day as when Luke was swinging his ax or waving his light saber.
Luke has been trying to 'streamline' the process for business owners in the city. It is fine to want to cut red tape. However, the neighborhood groups are going to be out in the cold.
If you want to keep a nightclub in a residential area, and the neighborhood residents don't want it to re-open -- then what side is the mayor going to take? I expect that the mayor, in his pro business mode, is going to try to streamline the process. That also means citizens get tossed under the steamroller.
Ravenstahl shakes up staff, P-G A new Mayor's Office position, director of operations, will be filled by Art Victor, a veteran of Allegheny County Commissioner Bob Cranmer's staff who is now with Green Tree-based correctional medical firm Wexford Health Services.Where is the posting for the job called "director of operations?"
Alecia Sirk, a former reporter and communications professional who is also Mr. Ford's wife, will be press secretary.That move worries me. Why was Matt H overlooked? Could they not come to terms in the last 90 days? Is that why there was such a delay?
