A picture is worth a thousand questions

Despite the occassional glimpse out there, the race for Allegheny County Chief Executive is still hull down on the horizon.  Just a few weeks left and only the occassional flicker of public interest can be seen through the fog.  I know there is often minimal focus on local elections, but it sure seems like we have reached a new level of disinterest, especially given the significance of the race.  I've sometimes seen more buzz in races for judge.  I don't even notice many yard signs in areas of town where placement is required by zoning code.  I guess we will see if interest picks up after Cinqo de Mayo?

As for what is coming from the candidates themselves; I get it, they all don't like property assessments.  Is there really nothing else to argue over?  The fate of the county rests in these candidates' hands.  If they are really challenged to debate something, I'll just throw this up there without additional comment.

If they stayed in stock, it's going to have improved at least some since 2009.

and it has a bit.. but not my as much as you would think. Lots of year in that chart were up years for the stock market that do not reflect in positive jumps for the pension assets.

We've been at this for a while, Chris, and I'm trying to remember a primary or general election in which you did not observe from about three weeks out, "Wow you guys, it's REALLY quiet out there." You may be right on every occasion, but it's no longer a novelty. Maybe we should all become vocally alarmed that we haven't seen Rich Fitzgerald's birth certificate?

That having been said, this is decent quality news, isn't it?
