It's bad enough we have a frat boy in the Whi te Hou se. Luke is a pathetic idiot.

"The City of Pittsburgh cannot release them (vehicle details), they are 'Official Use Only: Sensitive Homeland Security Information,'" mayoral spokeswoman Alecia Sirk wrote in an e-mail response to questions.

The fact that he went to a Toby Keith concert in the first place is quite embarrassing for Pittsburgh. The paralell's between the manchild's behavior and that of Dubya are striking.

For a while I wanted to give the guy a chance. But he just keeps on doing crap that he should know better than.

At this point I am 100% sure I'll be voting for DeSantis. My only regret is that if he wins and does some great stuff (which I hope he does) we'll never hear the end of people saying "See, all we needed was a Republican!" I think DeSantis is a good candidate (although I still find him vaguely annoying in a way I can't put my finger on). But I don't think it's his political affiliantion that makes him a good choice .

Oh well, as long as we get a good mayor I'll be happy.

The political affiliation is meaningless... DeSantis is way more progressive than Ravenstahl... who is the epitome of the greasy old-boys network. DeSantis is all about economic reality, social liberalism and operational transparency. It's a shame many Pittsburgh voters won't be able to see past the D and the R.

While I agree on a local level, D's and R's matter less and if I lived in the city, would happily vote for DeSantis, there is a reason why people for vote based on the letter after the name, party platform's. Again it matters less on a city level, but is significant for the state legislature and Congress. I know that a Republican in Harrisburg and in DC will vote in assinine ways, so until the the GOP platform changes, they won't get my vote. Period.

I know what you guys mean... I never thought I'd consider a Republican, but decided a couple months ago that I'd vote for DeSantis.

AFter all of the ridiculous frat boy antics of Ravenstahl, I've now taken the leap to putting a DeSantis sign in my yard.

(Plus it doesn't hurt that DeSantis seems like he'd make a good mayor.)

I've noticed quite a few DeSantis signs in Friendship.

I will absolutely be voting for DeSantis as well. Ravenstahl is a celebrity-chaser whose sole interest is indulging in every perk of office.

And so the occupant whiner and liar of the Mayor's office was able to get a puff piece from none other than theNY Times.

In the past year, the baby-faced mayor has helped keep the city

I predict that if/when we kick him out, people will think we are stodgy and old-fashioned for ditching the young mayor <_<
