Fourth Ward City Councilmember Jessica Yorko displays a t-shirt reading "Niowave Lies" while she waits in the lobby of the Niowave Corp.'s airport building before Tuesday night's State of the City speech by Lansing mayor Virg Bernero. She and neighbors of Niowave's headquarters in the Walnut Neighborhood wore the shirts to protest a pole barn built there by Niowave. Yorko donned a jacket over the shirt after Chief of Staff Randy Hannan admonished her to "keep it covered." But when she joined Bernero on stage during his televised address, Yorko opened her jacket, allowing the shirt to be partially visible.
