The photograph of Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto pitching in to fill potholes that ran with the news story “Kiely may still get position in Peduto's administration” should have been put in the section with the comics. The mayor worked a whole half-hour with a shovel in his hands, which was probably as long as it took photographers to get their pictures.

For many years, our city streets have been a total disgrace. Even the people in Erie laugh at the condition of our streets. Yet did Councilman Peduto ever make an effort to remedy the situation?

Or will Mayor Peduto use this winter as an excuse to raise taxes? Hold on to your wallets, because it is becoming evident that the mayor is more interested in increasing a bloated bureaucracy with high-priced advisers than in repairing our shamefully neglected infrastructure.
