Post Card from the Mayor

And certainly, we’re also working — not myself directly, but I know the County Executive and the folks from the Airport — are working to try to secure a direct flight from Pittsburgh to Europe, and from Pittsburgh to Amsterdam, so that’s certainly a big part of the trip as well.

And indications are those discussions are going well, so we’re cautiously optimistic that a link of a direct flight may be in the very near future as well.

Good news! This comes deep, deep within an interview by Larry Richert on the KDKA Morning News.

Mayor Ravenstahl also reflects on the “amazing” reliance on bicycle transit by the Dutch, revealing that Pittsburgh by comparison has a ways to go “to be competitive” with a city like Amsterdam. Larry Richert seems to suggest ways we might culturally catch up-to-speed.

    Seriously, people … from time to time there will be horrendous crime tradgedies, and from time to time they must be commented upon. Often, the most dignified thing is just let your heart bleed out and think what a shame, but occasionally the heart turns to solutions.Please nobody be offended if the senseless War on Drugs starts getting mentioned. Honestly, it is time to start solving our problems.
