Lawmaker's video about racist billboards

Posted

PA State Representative Jeff Pyle has released a video statement about the billboards in Worthington, Armstrong County.

Pyle prefaced his video with this written statement:

“To the residents who have been calling my office regarding the distasteful and divisive messages appearing on the billboard in Worthington off of Route 422, I want you to know that I completely disapprove of this hurtful hate speech.

"What we know so far is that this digital billboard is owned by a private individual who signed a two-year lease with the Worthington West Franklin Fire Department, who rent the land where the billboard is located. This individual has threatened to sue the fire department should it try and break the lease. My office and I continue to work with and speak to officials concerning this matter and are working to find a solution to this incredibly troubling issue.”
