City of Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is expected to make a major announcement regarding his political future in Pittsburgh, according to several local news outlets.
Media reports speculated that personal issues, or strain from a federal investigation of spending in the Pittsburgh Police department might be contributing factors in his announcement, although that has not been confirmed.
KDKA reports that a press conference is tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday.
A report from WPXI noted that the mayor has recently been absent from planned public appearances for city business and campaign events.
Ravenstahl announced his bid for re-election last Tuesday, according to the report, and will run against Bill Peduto and City Controller Michael Lamb for the seat.
