MANCHESTER - A controversial electronic billboard has labeled two well-known businessmen as '"drug dealers."

The sign is owned by Michael Gill, and has made headlines in the past for displaying profanities and accusing political leaders of corruption.

Now the sign displays photos of real estate developer Dick Anagnost, and CEO of AutoFair Andy Crews with the words “drug dealer.”

Both men are involved with Hope for New Hampshire Recovery, a peer-to-peer resource center for those struggling with addiction.

It's unclear whether a lawsuit will be filed, but Crews told The Union Leader the money would be better spent on helping those in recovery.
