Green Bay Alderman Opposes Renaming Street

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.”

    As a Chicago Bears And Minnesota Vikings Fan I do not like the Packers and Vince Lombardi continues to be the huge symbol to Green Bay with Lombardi Ave.
