Dear Editor:

While Mayor Ed Koch was a very good mayor who did much for New York City, renaming the Queensboro-59th Street Bridge after him should have been decided by a general referendum from the people of Queens.

The City Council should not have just made this decision without input from the people and politicians of Queens.

Our bridge is fine with the name that it has had since 1909. Why not leave it at that.

Who is going to pay for the expense of changing all of the traffic signs on the bridge? Will the taxpayers be burdened with that responsibility?
