Actually, when I canvass for signature, the public already knows the issue. For those who don't I show them the ordinance which is attached. As I mentioned before, there is a difference between renaming a street that has historical significance history in JC and a statue that did not replace an American monument. In 2010, JC did not mark the 350 anniversary of the founding of this city. I think that is wrong. Here is another example, Councilman Boggiano, as an activist before he won his office, try to get a piece of land has a historic site for a park. Historic battles took place there. Instead, the city turned the property over to a private developer. So, yes, Councilman Boggiano is correct and there are other sites in JC that has historic significant. Another example, the city wants to turn over the Apple Tree House to EDC, but for years, it was promise as a cultural site. I could go on to the lost history in this city but it is lost to many people here because the city does not value its own history.
