Take Politics Out of Naming

Recently the Dearborn City Council voted to rename the Hubbard Ballroom.

Dearborn Removes Orville Hubbard’s Name From Ballroom | Dearborn, MI Patch

This action should be applauded not because of Orville Hubbard’s history, but because he did not donate the money to build or renovate the space.

Government should only name buildings/rooms after those who donate the money to pay for them. An objective rule takes political popularity out of the decision making process.
