Renaming the Largo Library
I have some additional names to consider: John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Mother Teresa, Ronald Reagan, Laura Bush, Pope John Paul 2nd, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Adams, and many more. I do not think any of them have streets named after them either. The other names have earned the right to have the honor from the founding fathers of the country to other famous leaders.
If there is a demand for a statue of Dr. Martin Luther King I would imagine private money would fund it. I would like to see plaques of the persons mentioned in the library. We could place them along with Dr. King that would make everyone happy and keep the cost down. We could keep it named after the city.
