Mayor: I need an army to fight a drug war

This editorial seems to be identifying some slight issues with the mayor….

Mayor Frank Paterra — who, by all indications, would not care if Charleroi slid into the Monongahela River as long as it did not involve crack cocaine — concerns himself only with his personal war against illicit drug trafficking. […]
But in virtually the same breath, he called on council to cut other departments to pay for more police.
“I need an army to fight a drug war,” he said. “I need soldiers, and they’re not giving it to me. They need to prioritize the needs of this community.”

I never knew that the position of Mayor of Charleroi, Pennsylvania was also Commander-in-Chief of the army.
That’s Charleroi, Pennsylvania. Population 4,871
