SOAP LAKE - ‘It’s not over until it’s over,’ says one local man who’s paying for the pro-Trump billboard-turned-roadside attraction in Soap Lake.
Lorres Golbienko of Soap Lake had the political sign plastered on the billboard in September 2019. Golbienko’s original agreement with Emerald Outdoor Advertising spanned through November of 2020, but says recently provided additional payment to keep the sign up through the end of December.
“The sign isn’t going down until the election is certified, it’s not over yet,” Golbienko told iFIBER ONE News on Wednesday. The election certification deadline is Dec. 8.
Golbienko’s sign was the subject of controversy when it was first erected and has been a draw for passing motorists.
Golbienko isn’t sure whether he’ll continue to pay for the sign beyond December, but if he does, he says he’ll change it up with a new message; as far as what that message will be remains under consideration.
