AMTRAK BACKTRACKS ON SIGN SWAP!!
Dec 12, 2018 —
Dear fellow crusaders for sign justice,
Today is a good day for the good, sign-loving people of the Delaware Valley. News broke last night that Amtrak has heard us out and will consider keeping the clickety clackety sign at 30th St. Station.
Our patron saint, Inga Saffron, reported in the Inquirer last night that Congressman Brendan Boyle, who represents part of Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties had a productive phone call with the CEO of Amtrak regarding keeping the sign.
"Boyle, a Democrat whose district includes a chunk of Northeast Philadelphia, said that he was “very pleasantly surprised” by Anderson’s response, and that Anderson “was very receptive” to retaining the sign in some form. Anderson suggested that Amtrak could either refurbish the flipboard or replace it with a new model that would be integrated into Amtrak’s computer network, Boyle said."
Our petition was mentioned in the article as well.
The goal of this petition is to "not stop clacking our keyboards until Amtrak hears us." In fact, they now have heard us.
This is, obviously, terrific news for us sign lovers. I'd like to thank Rep. Boyle for his work on behalf of the people, and to Saffron, for hers. Politics, press, and the people came together on this one, and that is really cool.
This certainly isn't the end of the road, however, as nothing has been decided. But it is neat that we were heard.
Yours in civil municipal debate,
Clickety Clack ✊
