I believe that renaming a public facility after a politician who is still in office is wrong because it endorses that candidate at the expense of all of us, irregardless if we support that party or candidate. The naming of public facilities should be done with that consideration in mind.
When we name our buildings and schools after great, historical, noteworthy people, it grounds us in remembrance of who those people were and what their values were. Some of us may conclude that the troubles we face today are because we have forgotten the values and ethics of those great leaders, educators and heroes who came before us.
