Mayor wants to know why you love Pittsburgh


Mayor Luke Ravenstahl wants you to be Pittsburgh's Valentine.

 To help commemorate Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary, the mayor is asking for your answer to the question: Why do you love Pittsburgh? Over the next three weeks, the answers will be collected, and the mayor and his staff will be reading the replies.

 If you submit one of the final 10 most unique, exciting, romantic or unusual Pittsburgh Valentines, you'll be invited to a Valentine's reception with the mayor.

 ”Everyone who knows me knows how much I love Pittsburgh,” Mayor Ravenstahl said. “We wanted to take advantage of the Valentine's Day holiday to mark our 250th anniversary in a way that both promotes Pittsburgh and includes our communities.”

The City of Pittsburgh website is featuring a “Pittsburgh Valentines” logo. Click on that logo to tell the mayor why you love Pittsburgh in 50 words or less.

Mayor Ravenstahl and members of his staff will choose the 10 top reasons from those submitted.  The authors of the most unique reasons will be invited to a noontime Valentine reception with the mayor on Wednesday, Feb 13.

The top 10 reasons selected will also be posted on the city's website to help commemorate Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary.

All entries must be received by Friday, Feb 8.  The authors of the 10 reasons selected will be notified by telephone on Monday, Feb. 11.
