Pittsburgh's Mayor Has Died

Bob O'Connor's brief tenure as mayor has ended. He died at 8:55 tonight.

Former City Council President Luke Ravenstahl was just sworn in as the new mayor. Mayor Ravenstahl had set a record as the youngest person ever elected to the city council. I don't know this for a fact, but I am guessing that he may now be Pittsburgh's youngest mayor. He's a 2002 graduate of Washington and Jefferson College.

UPDATE: Yes, he is the youngest mayor Pittsburgh's had.
