As InsolvenCity drifts toward BankrupCity, another CILNO (candidate invoking last name only), has announced a campaign for public office.
Tony Ceoffe Jr. -- whose campaign announcement lists a Central Catholic diploma, a position as ward chair for the city Democratic Committee, and a board position with a community group that was led by Ceoffe Sr. as his qualifications -- desires to replace Dr. Patrick Dowd in Insolvencity's Council District 7. If Ceoffe the Younger (26) has earned a college degree, held a real job, or accomplished anything beyond receiving a birth certificate with a politically connected surname, he apparently doesn't want to brag.
That Dr. Dowd should worry about competition from the likes of Tony Ceoffe Jr. is among the points that should incline the rest of the region to begin looking for an ice floe large enough to hold the City of Pittsburgh long enough to reach deep water.
