Concert Too Mayor

I have had to move my chair more than once to try to get upwind of a Sunday night concert smoker.

It seems like the smokers are females in most cases.

In addition it being unhealthy, IT STINKS.

It is great the MASD has curbed the smoking by students in the grassy area. Thanks.

Haven't been to Christy Park's playground in years. Doesn't look to bad in that small picture. All I remember is trying to explain to my kids what all those words meant written all over the slides, etc.Also, why has the main playground at Renzie fallen into such disrepair? Yeah, I know "littlepitbulls" But if the parks are now going to be patrolled for smokers how about vandals? Doesn't seem like we've ever been successful in that department. When was the last time there was a nonbroken swing? Why isn't the spray pool on in the 90 degree days? And the final question, what happened to the KABOOM money? I saw the picture in the paper with everyone's smiling faces when McKeesport got the funds, but the equipment still broken. Most communities, the KABOOM team does the repairs. I'm still waiting. Or how about the RAD money? Please fix the sespool called Lake Emily. Didn't have to ask twice or wait long when we wanted that big rock with Brewsters name on it at Olympic corner. I lied, final question, who paid for that?

Jim Brewster ordered that monument and others without the knowledge and consent of Council. This was an illegal act by Mr. Brewster but we know he is above the law and owns council majority.

After some time, council authorized payment of the illegal procurements by Brewster because the vendor was not at fault for providing the monuments based on the his good faith and mayoral position.

Yeah, what's up with the Kaboom money? I think we should pose that question to the Controller. He'll get after them. The Mayor got a photo op and made some statement about having the most active playground in the area. Really? Ever go to the White Oak playground on 48? Renzie's playground hasn't been updated forever. There's not a single good swing there. So the Mayor had to have a brand new Tahoe so bad that we can't spend $50 on a couple replacement swing seats? Put the City and our kids first Mayor!

How can you express such truths and facts about our esteemed mayor who was hand picked, protected, and nurtured by the Honorable Senator who is self proclaimed more popular than our Lord in the Port?

The article says that UPMC was a partner in this. PLEASE.

They put up "no smoking" signs outside their doors but then allow gangs of their employees to smoke on street corners right across the street saying they cannot dictate what employees do in public areas.

The UPMC gangs look like a bunch of addicts hanging out and smoking. Full hospital scrubs, nametags, everything.

hanging out on street corners, sitting on stoops, puffing the cancer sticks.

Its disgusting.

While I think its a great idea to forbid smoking on our parks 9or any public area for that matter), how do you enforce it? This is just political BS to appease people and gain votes. Our cops are not going to be patrolling the parks looking for smokers....

They cant stop people from SHOOTING people in McKeesport and they are going to stop them from SMOKING? LOL

GOOD LUCK!
