We had a victory…but it’s not over!

Digital billboards on Vine Street

Do we want this to be the future of the Electric Factory building?

Round One: Mayor Nutter Vetoed the Digital Wallwrap Bill 120920 because, among many good reasons is the fact that Philadelphia will lose upwards of $100 million dollars in federal highway fundingby allowing this one giant digital advertising sign. Councilman Squilla did NOT call for a vote to override the veto.

Round Two: Next Thursday, Jan 31st at 10:00 Room 400 City Hall, Councilman Squilla will have his last chance to call for an override of the Mayor’s veto of Bill 120920. Please continue to contact our seven at- large council members and ten district council members.

The Bill’s sponsor, Councilman Squilla may still try to round up the 12 votes needed to override the Mayor’s veto and has until next Thursday to do so. So take a few moments this week to contact our at-large and your district council members.

Thank you for your advocacy in protecting Philadelphia’s scenic gateway!
