The County and the City were sitting in a tree K-I-S-S —
The County and the City released a joint press release yesterday seeking 1,400 volunteers to “help with a series of clean up and beautification projects” on September 12 in preparation for the G-20 summit.
Danny O said:
“The Pittsburgh Summit is an opportunity for us to make a stunning first and lasting impression on visitors from around the world,” said Onorato. “We’ve identified key transportation corridors and other locations for cleanup and beautification. Now, we’re calling on at least 1,400 volunteers to help us with the G-20 Cleanup on Saturday, September 12. There are projects throughout the county, and I encourage residents to come out and pitch in.”
Standard Politico-Bot 2000 speak. Moving on.
“Let’s show the world that a clean City with engaged and healthy residents is what makes Pittsburgh ‘America’s most livable city.’”
I can’t be 100% sure, but I think Lukey is asking the obese and sickly-looking people to stay the hell home during the G-20.
Show the world our healthy residents?!
If I’m writing his statement for this particular press release, it says:
“I understand you pay taxes so that we can hire people to do these things, but the fact remains that we are in so far over our heads with this G-20 thing that from down here I’ll get the bends before I reach the surface alive, so please come out and pitch in to make your city shine. Beer and cupcakes will be served.”
