Changing street names

Dear Editor:I am completely in agreement with Bonnie West's letter dated March 31. ("No to Feinstein," Letters to the Editor) I cannot see the benefit of naming a street after a politician who's only achievement is funneling money - not her own - to various areas in order to gain votes. I know there will probably be some city politicians telling us again how all the affected people who live on the street who's name is to be changed are in favor and looking forward to the time and trouble it takes to change their addresses on all the credit cards, checks, driver's licenses and all other correspondence, such as we were all told with a straight face when Clark Avenue was recently changed. So if we are going to change street names, let us name streets after those who have actually had an impact on Downey through their own deed or those who have elevated mankind other than for publicity or the distribution of money. -- Ed Romero, Downey
