Billboard lawyers continue INC infiltration

Posted by on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 at 5:48 PM

Durham's Inter-Neighborhood Council is scheduled to vote on the billboard issue tonight at 7, according to Bull City Rising. So it's not a coincidence that Patrick Byker, a lawyer for K&L Gates, the firm representing the billboard company seeking significant changes to the city's billboard ordinance, apparently is looking to get (re)involved in the INC. See below for his email to his neighborhood association. Craige Sanders, another K&L attorney, is already INC president.
