anti-Rename Dixon Landing to obama Rd
Grandstanding politicians create this drama and unnecessary chaos to local residents for what? Look at the poll created by Mayor Rich Tran on Facebook, people spoke and got ignored!
“ What's the gain or purpose for this non-sense? Nothing, but only cost tax payer's money and show how boring those politicians are！” quote from one resident's comments.
