City should leave street names alone

To the Editor:

I want to voice my opinion on street names being changed after all these years since I wasn’t given the chance as well as others to say whether we oppose it or not. I want you to know I do not like it one bit and feel as if there were a need to do so – why not give 1st through 10th avenues a street name. I moved on my street because I liked the name.

Personally, I think it’s wasted money and time changing street names and also, for ones that have to go back and change the street maps.

Councilmembers and Mayor Perkins, I hope you reconsider or at least let the people on these streets give a fair vote.

I live at 2405 Summerfield Road – The full block between Lauren and Birch avenues and have always been proud of the fact that I do so.

I think I should have a say-so in a change of names.

Also, you could make a plaque or bust or a statue of her and leave the street names alone.

Thank you.

Mrs. R.L. Hatfield
