First scheduled mayoral debate


The Pittsburgh Civic Design Coalition will hold a forum for Pittsburgh mayoral candidates at 6 p.m. Sept. 27 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the group announced yesterday.

Mayor Ravenstahl, seen here getting a detailed explanation of precisely how his police record can now be erased from anywhere in the city, is already confirmed. Unless, of course, the weather is nice, in which case he will be golfing. You can’t waste these precious Thursdays, you know.

Mark DeSantis is also confirmed, which is not surprising, since he would prefer to debate every day between now and the election.

No word on whether Ryan the Butcher was invited, but you can be pretty sure that you, reader, were not. This event is architects only.

On the subject of Meatpacker Ryan Scott, represented here by a Memphis wide receiver of the same name, I called the Socialist Workers late last week to ask for information about their mayoral candidate. The guy in their office and bookstore took my name, phone number, and e-mail, and promised to get some information to me. It has been three days now, and still no word.

I think it is probably safe to assume he supports socialism, which would be an alternative to Mark DeSantis, and working, which would be an alternative to Luke Ravenstahl.
