91: Nick Jacobs
Cut the Bullshit Rant: Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania have so many positives. I wish we could grow the confidence of our region. Instead of apologizing or mumbling where you’re from or what you do, say it loud, say it proud.Pittsburgh ranks among the top places to live, work, and visit in the United States. Our city is consistently recognized as a first-rate city for livability, culture, and economy including:
*Travel+Leisure voted Pittsburgh among the Best Places to Travel in 2016
*Worth Magazine selected Pittsburgh as one of their 15 dynamic cities in 2016.
*US News ranks the Pittsburgh region as one of the most affordable places to live.
The list could and does go on at the VisitPittsburgh website. http://www.visitpittsburgh.com/
My point is: Be positive about your region. Tell the real story and go beyond the clichés.
