From Mike Wereschagin in the Trib:
Pittsburgh City Councilman Bill Peduto went so far as to suggest Providence smiles on the Isle of Capri proposal.
“If God doesn’t want this to happen, why is it such a beautiful day?” Peduto asked the more than 500 Penguins fans who gathered in Mellon Square Park.
Across the street, in the Omni William Penn Hotel, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board spent the day listening to public comments on the three casino proposals…
I guess Peduto could seize on Ravenstahl’s failure to ensure the Isle of Capri plan. Or Peduto could turn the heat up on PITG moving forward, and go further as a “champion of the little guy” than can a sitting mayor, who must make PITG work for him.
