GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay alderman says he opposes renaming a street after the coach of the world champion Green Bay Packers.
Alderman Chris Wery just happens to running for mayor. Wery says the current mayor’s announcement about renaming a street McCarthy’s Way is nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Mayor Jim Schmitt announced the idea Tuesday at the “Return to Titletown” Super Bowl celebration at Lambeau Field. Schmitt is running for re-election.
Wery tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette that renaming a street for coach Mike McCarthy is an “unnecessary expense and hassle.”
