As amusing as the concept is, I'm actively against the idea of "running just because you can". Now, if you can lay out an actual platform and why you'd be a better mayor for Pittsburgh than the other, more known candidates, then I'll listen, but otherwise, I'm against it.

Then again, I don't live there anymore, so my opinion on the matter doesn't carry all that much weight, now does it?

ah... you misunderstand... its not just "because I can." I have lots of political ideas. Anyone who reads anything I post here should be able to gather that. But this isn't a post about the actual campaigning. This is the exploratory committee. The "should I run" discussion and not the "I promise to" discussion. When and if I decide to run, those types of posts would appear here (and likely on an official campaign website, probably at Among other things, what I'm wondering is what people would like to see me standing for in such a campaign.

That's specifically why I invited people to reference my earlier posts instead of putting a platform out here at this point. This is the time when we formulate that platform.

In anycase, I just added an edit to clarify that.
