I have long believed we needed a custom (I hate to say "law" as we have too many of those already) that anything built with public funds (libraries, roads, bridges, schools, lakes, etc.) should/could not be named after elected officials. Certainly not sitting elected officials. We have public buildings/facilities in Oklahoma named after elected officials who have since gone to jail!!!!
I don't care how "instrumental" the elected official, be he governor, senator, legislator, county commissioner, etc., was in getting the thing built, the fact is it was still built with public money, not the official's money! There are plenty of hardworking, honest citizens that deserve things named after them. The elected officials get too much credit/acclaim as it is.
