UPDATE: He’s ALIVE! And pissed that people wondered where he was all day. Even though Council couldn’t find him all day today, Lukey just held a press conference saying he’s been in Pittsburgh all day. So he was NOT in New Orleans! And no, I’m not the only one that heard that rumor. The media heard it too and NOT from me.
Where he’s been all day? Who knows. Should his press secretary have known where he was? Heck yes. Does it look bad that no one knew where he was? Yep.
But he’s here. He says he’s been here the whole time, and I guess that’s that.
This is a game.
Like Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.
Luke Ravenstahl is missing.
I’ve been hearing rumors for days now that he planned to go to Mardi Gras. At this point, they’re just rumors, but here’s the problem: NO ONE KNOWS WHERE LUKEY IS TODAY!
He was not in his office today. His car has not been seen. Zober hasn’t been seen for days. Luke did not attend the funeral of John Murtha. He was supposed to sign an Emergency Declaration Extension yesterday, but he wasn’t around to do it. He canceled all of his meetings for today.
“Mayoral spokeswoman Joanna Doven said she did not know Mr. Ravenstahl’s whereabouts today but he is in Pittsburgh.”
The Dread Lord hasn’t responded to my email, which is rare.
What if Lukey is lost, you guys?! What if he couldn’t take his regular routes around town because some of the streets were iced over or unplowed, and therefore took an alternate, meandering, confusing route.
HELP US FIND OUR MAYOR!
On your marks, get set, GO!
Also, just for fun, Lukey at the Foggy Goggle on his birthday while the Snowpocalypse was happening!
On a serious note, of course the Mayor has a private life and he should be allowed to live that private life in a respectable fashion when it doesn’t interfere with serving the public. However, as an elected Mayor of a major metropolitan area, it is almost NEVER okay to go AWOL and from what the media and others are telling me, Lukey has gone AWOL.
