No Street Name for Daub
We received the following note from former Mayor Hal Daub today. We will have further comments about 'naming' resolutions in the next few days, but we encourage you to read Hal's words below.
"With all the talk about street naming, it seems some people are talking about naming a street after me as well. Respectfully—but with regard to P.J. Morgan, Mike Boyle, and some good mayors who served Omaha faithfully and are now deceased—I don’t think it’s appropriate. This special honor has traditionally been bestowed at the end a lifetime of service—and by God’s grace I hope to have many more years ahead of me to continue to serve our community in the ways which bring Mary and me so much joy. So for me, the consideration is appreciated, but not at this time or under these circumstances."
