The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco gathered far more signatures than they needed to get a measure on the ballot renaming the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant. I love the smell of democracy in the morning.
We reported this story here in April. The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is advocating for the renaming of the prize winning Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant. Dana Perino isn't talking, as you can see in this report from June 25th. But we've got the full story from the San Francisco Chronicle, and here's an excerpt:
San Francisco voters will be asked to decide whether to name a city sewage plant in honor of President Bush, after a satiric measure qualified for the November ballot Thursday.
Backers of the measure, who for several months circulated a petition to place the measure on the ballot, turned in more than 12,000 signatures on July 7, said organizer Brian McConnell. The Department of Elections on Thursday informed those supporters, the self-proclaimed Presidential Memorial Commission, that they had enough valid signatures - a minimum of 7,168 registered San Francisco voters - to qualify for the November ballot.
