Ravenstahl comments on mayor race

Published by Lillian Thomas on .

Peeking his head out, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl issued a statement this afternoon congratulating yesterday's election winners.

Despite the bad blood between the mayor and Councilman Bill Peduto, and the negative ads he funded targeting his longtime rival, Ravenstahl struck a conciliatory tone in his statement on Peduto's primary win.

"Congratulations to Bill Peduto and to all of the winners of yesterday’s primary election. I wish everyone the best of luck in the general election in November. We all share a common love for our hometown, and I look forward to working with the victor of the mayoral general election to ensure a smooth transition between administrations."
