Congressman Vito Fossella wants to change the name of "Great Kills Park" to " World War II Veterans Park at Great Kills". While I see the merit of paying tribute to the veterans of WW II there is no historical relevance in renaming Great Kills Park ( a name that dates back to the 16th century) in Honor of the veterans. The Parks Department has suggested both Fort Wadsworth or Miller Field as more appropriate sports for the Honor, as they both have military associations.
Please write Congressman Vito Fossella at the address below and tell him you Like the name "Great Kills Park" & you Want him to STOP his action to rename the park.
Thank you, Jeff
The Honorable, Vito Fossella
