Proving that life often imitates a Christopher Buckley novel, fired Purcell Marian assistant principal Mike Moroski announces his run for city council:

Earlier this month, when the married Catholic made a controversy-stirring blog post in support of gay marriage, Moroski had said he was planning to run for a future City Council election.

Now, on that same blog … he declared his candidacy: “I have decided to follow my lifelong dream of running for Cincinnati City Council.”

The gay-marriage-support blog posting led to Moroski’s being terminated by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, which requires educators and other employees to sign a contract requiring them to “act consistently in accordance with the stated philosophy and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.” The Chuch opposes gay marriage.

Moroski, 34, lives Downtown. His blog says simply: “I love people. I also love Cincinnati, music and baseball.”

But he describes a multi-faceted campaign platform: “Tax incentives for big business, better not for profit management, education reform and a resolution to our city’s pension issue.”
