WE'RE 4 THE FRANKLIN + ELEANOR ROOSEVELT BRIDGE
- Governor Andrew Cuomo, NYS Senators + Assembly-Members
- United States of America
The 4 A BETTER WESTCHESTER + NYS ASSOCIATION, INC. (www.TakeBackOurFutureNow.org) has proposed renaming the Mid-Hudson Bridge, connecting Poughkeepsie and Highland, NY, the FRANKLIN + ELEANOR ROOSEVELT BRIDGE.
Although its legal name is the "Franklin D. Roosevelt Mid-Hudson Bridge," the signs on Route 9 (the main north-south artery) still say "Mid-Hudson Bridge," without mentioning FDR, and everyone in the Hudson Valley still calls it the Mid-Hudson Bridge.
Franklin + Eleanor Roosevelt were Hudson Valley natives who were the 2 most important and influential 20th century Americans. Thanks to Franklin + Eleanor Roosevelt, Americans today benefit from the legacies of the New Deal, including Social Security, which has done more good for more people than any government program in history, and which actually generates a surplus.
Thanks to the leadership provided by Franklin + Eleanor Roosevelt, we won WW2, in part because Franklin Roosevelt was fluent in German and understood, before almost anyone, the menace that Adolph Hitler posed to everyone,
To express our gratitude to Franklin + Eleanor Roosevelt, for all that they did for all of us, and to encourage tourism in the Hudson Valley, we respectfully request that the NY State Senate and Assembly pass legislation to rename the "Franklin D. Roosevelt Mid-Hudson Bridge,' the "FRANKLIN + ELEANOR ROOSEVELT BRIDGE," and that Governor Cuomo sign that legislation, at the FDR Library (Hyde Park, NY) on January 30, 2019, which would have been Franklin Roosevelt's 136th birthday, and that the signage on the adjacent highways be changed to read "FRANKLIN + ELEANOR ROOSEVELT BRIDGE (FORMERLY MID-HUDSON BRIDGE) for 10 years, after which the "FORMERLY MID-HUDSON BRIDGE" would be removed.
