In a surprise move, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl today threw his support behind the concept of merging the city and Allegheny County, as he joined county Chief Executive Dan Onorato and University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark Nordenberg in unveiling a detailed report on governmental cooperation.
Listen to me. I don’t care if you made this decision because you did the research, read the report, and truly found it to be in the best interests of the region, or if you made this decision because Dan Onorato and Ed Rendell gave you dual Indian burns until you peed your pants.
I just want to say THANK YOU for agreeing to support this merger because when I drink too much from the Move Forward drinking game and fall drunkenly off of my fence, I always land on the side of the consolidation.
Git on wit’ yo bad self, Baby Face!
