Pittsburgh Police Chief Cameron McLay announced Friday that he’s resigning after two years on the job. Asst. Chief of Operations Scott Schubert will be acting chief for the next 90 days. “We knew we weren’t going to have him very long,” Mayor Bill Peduto said of McLay at a press conference, adding that three years is the national average for police chiefs. How long do chiefs last in Pittsburgh? It varies, from less than a year to more than nine. Read about McLay’s tenure, from his appointment in Sept. 2014 to his resignation.
Hillary Clinton made a campaign stop Friday at Heinz Field’s Great Hall and brought along her whole Pittsburgh crew: singer Donnie Iris, “Shark Tank” shark Mark Cuban and Steelers Hall of Famers Mel Blount and Franco Harris. Just how Pittsburgh was the event? Someone in the crowd called Donald Trump a “jagoff.”
