Mount Washington billboard twitter war.

Lots happening with the Lamar/Pittsburg dispute over the Mount Washington Banner sign.  Lamar changed the sign vinyl.  Pittsburg’s Mayor has engaged in a twitter war with Sprint executive Mark Nachman over the issue.  Here’s Nachman’s original tweet

 

And then Mayor Peduto got involved.

And the war was on.

Lamar has offered to give the city the billboard in return for settlement of some legal and tax disputes with the city.  Lamar put up the billboard in May 2016 after four years of discussions with the city in which the city failed to rule on the billboard’s renovation plan.

Insider’s take:  Here’s hoping Lamar prevails.  It’s outrageous for a city to not even rule on a billboard renovation proposal for four years.
