PITTSBURGH - Mayor Luke Ravenstahl yesterday asked for a resignation letter from his sixteen-year-old grass cutter Noah Swayne in an effort to re-evaluate his performance.
In a statement, the mayor said he was "not satisfied with the condition of my front lawn" and will conduct a nationwide search for the best candidate to assume the duties. Swayne is being asked to apply.
Swayne was a holdover from the O'Connor administration. He cut then-Mayor O'Connor's grass from April 2006 until O'Connor's death in September 2006.
Mayor Ravenstahl reportedly will ask for similar letters of resignation from his dentist, auto mechanic and barber.
