Nike Vs. Under Armour Rivalry Gets Political
“I recognize that Nike may not be pleased with this decision. I believe it is the most ethical choice, honoring both corporations and also park users.

It is not in the public interest for me to refuse a generous gift from a new business partner for improvements at Duniway and Lents.”
