Now that a GE plant has shown interest in moving Fort Wayne’s iconic sign to Kentucky, the pressure is on. Do we step up or let it go?

Steve Ealing: Part of me says it is a piece of Ft. Wayne history just like the W&D Santa and wreath and we should do everything to keep it but the other part of me says GE chose to abandon Ft. Wayne so why display it somewhere and give them free publicity. I’ve been deployed to Kuwait for 2+ years but I can say for sure Broadway will never look the same again.

Jeff Whetstone: They are gone.....the sign should be too! The city should charge them rent until it’s gone!

Marlin Mccoart: I say tear the whole thing down and clean up that area tear it down sell it for scrap

Marlin Mccoart: I don’t know why you’d want to keep fine what good is it the city would just put it in storage

Jodus N Nama Backstrom: keep it its a part of OUR HISTORY!!!!! in fact there should b like town mettin to hear the communities input on the decision!!!!!

Lori Fry Boyer Dove: and hope it break on the way!

Timothy Daring: Let it go!!! It’s time to move on.

PJ Wiltshire: I’d rather bring back the Jenny Electric sign.

Paul Griner: It’s a sign of the times... Fort Wayne use to be a manufacturing hub. But as the likes of corporate America GE included have had an all out assault on the middle class in search of cheap labor its communities across America so GE please take your sign overseas where you took the jobs.
