Re: “Durham Council votes unanimously against digital billboards

Council Member Clement's question wasn't exactly about 'a' billboard at the location next to the bridge, but the particular ad it was displaying ("Dixie Gun & Knife Show in Raleigh") directly next to the new bridge which the Council will dedicate on September 16 to Durham civil rights leader R Kelly Bryant, Jr.
Fairway Advertising's commitment to the common good was put on trial at his question "Who can do something about that billboard?" Lewis Cheek gave the inane answer quoted above, and the Fairway General Manager, whose company owns it [http://tinyurl.com/27lsbmf] and thus can exercise some form of control over what is advertised there (or one would assume), was silent as to a solution.
Really, the idea of a slick attorney-led campaign for industry was also put on trial, as their weak arguments and narrow claims were items of ridicule by night's end.
