Dear Editor,

The blatant political opinion billboard on Fort Street at the former Alabam’s is a blight on the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of Buffalo. I realize the property owner has a right to express their opinion on their private property, but I think it prudent to consider how it makes our community look to visitors and fellow residents. Regardless of any particular political persuasion any of us have, I think brazen political statements on business billboards gives our community a black eye. It also reflects on adjoining businesses that may or may not be associated with the message. Wouldn’t it be more productive to post kind and welcoming words that reflects Buffalo’s friendliness?
