Official Statement on Renaming of Spruce Street in Scranton, PA

“It is poor public policy to name or rename public property in honor of politicians until they have left office or passed from this world and the full depth and breadth of their life and service can be measured. Additionally, based on reporting, it seems the officials who made this decision neglected to consult all the affected property owners and small business owners who now face additional financial burdens because of this decision. The City of Scranton should reverse course on this. Failing that, the City should reimburse all affected taxpayers for any and all costs incurred in complying with their edict.”

-Chairman Lance Stange, Jr.
