Pat Ford resigned from his position as URA boss with what the PG calls a “strongly worded letter.” His resignation is effective at the end of this year, thus ensuring he will get paid to do absolutely nothing 8 of the 12 months of 2008.
This man is evilgenius.
Some things he is not so genius about:
1. NEVER resign your position with a letter detailing why you resigned and never insult your boss while you’re doing it. Paper trail = bad news when you’re hunting for a new job. You just say, hey, I quit. Thanks for the opportunity to work with you, but I feel my talents would be better used elsewhere. Good luck, bitches. THEN go home and poke pins into the eyes of your Luke Ravenstahl voodoo doll.
I believed that by working together we could have a positive impact on this city, embracing all that it has to offer. But that vision never materialized, and as I have always said, ‘Where there is no vision, people perish.’ I have no desire to perish along with Luke Ravenstahl’s Pittsburgh.
2. Please do not quote the Bible and claim it as your own. I refer you to Proverbs 29:18 which states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
“To this day, my wife and I are being persecuted with no support from the administration I served, for no real reason whatsoever,”
3. Please do not play the martyr and expect us to feel sorry for you because first, you’ve been paid since April and second, dude, you nailed yourself to that cross with your own actions and the actions of your wife.
You’re not Jesus. We don’t feel sorry for you.
Now, if you’re disappointed with your political party, can I suggest you join the Choke-A-Bitchocratic party? Here’s the deal though — We don’t take no shit, so you’ll need to stop being shady, stop being an Annoying Burgher, stop being a martyr, stop being a cigar-smoking, power suit-wearing, egomaniacal faker and start being real.
Think about it.
