A bullet in the brain might have cost Dominic J. Costa his job as Pittsburgh police chief, but that hasn’t stopped him from considering a run for mayor.
Costa, who twice retired on medical disability, most recently in September, questions Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s credentials and said he’s considering a Democratic primary challenge in May.
“Every day, people come up to me and say ‘You should run for mayor,’ ” said Costa, of Stanton Heights. “I feel humbled and flattered people in the city and in Allegheny County are urging me to run for public office.
“It would be remiss for me if I didn’t look into it.”
No. No. No no no no no!
Who are these people telling Dom Costa to run for Mayor?
With the gross amount of Costas running around this city … I’m guessing they are his relatives.
Also? I’m THIS close to starting a drinking game for every time Lukey or Dick Skrinjar, Mayor Ravenstahl’s chief of making shit up, trys to convince us that Lukey has no interest in politics:
Ravenstahl’s spokesman, Dick Skrinjar, said the mayor is “too busy being mayor to worry about politics.”
Shut UP, Dick.
Over at the Morningside Market in Morningside that Costa frequents, Vicki Moesta stopped him Tuesday, begging him to run.
“My dream would come true. I hope, I hope, I hope he runs,” Moesta said.
Ms. Moesta, if you are dreaming about Dom Costa … well … God help you. That is all.
