Willie Brown: ‘Nothing to do with idea to name Bay Bridge west span after me’

Monday, June 24, 2013

The Chronicle columnist and ex-mayor denied Sunday that he had anything to do with an  idea by a few of his pals in Sacramento—and which insofar as I can tell has generated absolutely no buzz—to name the iconic west span of the Bay Bridge after him. From his (pay-walled) column:

Pardon me while I set the record straight: I had nothing to do, directly or indirectly, with the idea in the Legislature of naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after me.

I don't like the idea of my name being on things. I caught holy hell when Gavin Newsom said he wanted to name Third Street after me, and it never happened. They named a school after me, and it promptly closed.
