San Jose Mayor Simply ‘Excited’ That PwC Chose to Move into a Building That Was Vacant for Eight Years

San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed said Wednesday that he was “excited” that PwC was staying in San Jose.

Something along the lines of “OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! PwC, we are so grateful that you saved this building from becoming overrun by cobwebs and rats plus, it won’t be the laughingstock of our skyline anymore!”

No, Mayor Reed kept things fairly tepid:

“It’s a big relief for me,” said Reed. “I was worried about a major tenant moving out of downtown.”

Plus, you know, having this eyesore remain empty for a few more years.
