Carlisle Says City Won't "Tolerate" Homelessness During APEC

After slipping-up and referring to his office as "the prosecutor's office" in front of a couple hundred attendees at the Asia-Pacific Homeland Security Summit and Exposition Tuesday, Mayor Peter Carlisle cracked a joke about missing "the good ole days when I was putting people in jail."

Those good ole days lasted 14 years for the former city prosecutor, who was elected mayor in a September special election. In case that one-liner didn't draw enough of a laugh, the mayor continued with an exaggerated sarcasm in his voice as he described his current gig:

"Your pothole?" he paused for effect. "I'm on top of it."
