Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott may have a response to recent critics who say the leader has kept too low a profile lately; gender reassignment. “I’ve been thinking about this for a while now” the Flagship City patriarch commented Friday night. “If I can get half of the positive response Caitlyn Jenner has gotten, my public perception would receive a huge boost.” Sinnott has tried other tactics lately to increase his influence, but addressing gun violence by simply asking criminals to “stop it” and riding a motorcycle in the front of a parade has not gotten the expected response from City Hall. This move seems to be the next logical step in order to increase an approval rating that has been dwindling in recent months. If this doesn’t work, Sinnott says his next move is to release a sex tape sometime in 2016.
