"...Request for resignation letters has sent shock waves through City Hall".
This story is not about Pittsburgh. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is shaking things up in his city, too.
From the San Francisco Chronicle:
"Although he refused to say how many resignation letters he plans to accept, City Hall observers say the mayor is probably targeting a handful of individuals he wants to remove from their posts, but doesn't want to have to publicly fire".
There's more in this story about their mayor:
"...who is running for re-election in November but faces no serious political threat in the race, told department heads and commissioners in letters Monday that the request signals his desire to 'make bold changes in the coming term.'"
...and there's analysis in this editorial:
"...department heads, aides and commission appointees have until Friday to offer their resignations - and he'll decide which ones to accept."

An Astrologer/Blogger there is blaming Pluto and a solar eclipse.
Meanwhile, there's a video online of my Channel 4 Action News story about Mayor Ravenstahl's city government shakeup. I can't provide a direct link, but one appears within this Pittsburgh Channel story.
