An email from reader John A gave me a look at Lukey’s October Neighborhood Newsletter:
We continue to move forward with a comprehensive plan for addressing your public safety issues, implementing new and innovative ways of taking back our streets.
I look forward to hearing from you and working together with you as we continue to move the City forward and energize Pittsburgh’s future.
Do you realize how close he just came to the “Jackpot Phrase“? We were THIS close, you guys!!
I particularly love this line:
We have added officers in order to subtract crime and we are using technology to keep these officers out on the streets where we need them.
Who knew crime was just a simple math problem? Awesome!
Mayor Lukey (putting down his Fun Dip stick): Nate! How’s crime!?
Nate Harper: We’re seeing a major increase in violent crime, particularly gun fights on the North Side.
Mayor Lukey (doodling “I [heart] me!” on his Trapper Keeper): Well, darn it. Subtract it! That’s it, Fort Pitt!
P.S. Fun Dip rocks. Always.
