4 Ways to Avoid Embarrassment for Wrong Names on NJ Buildings

4 Ways to Avoid Embarrassment for Wrong Names on NJ Buildings
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Some of New Jersey’s finest have had the honor of seeing buildings named after them. The Meadowlands arena has been renamed after former New Jersey governor Brendan Byrne, and a train station in Secaucus was named for state senator Frank Lautenberg in 2000.

Also, West New York renamed a public school Robert Menendez Public School in December 2013. Oops.

There are no do-overs when it comes to naming a building after someone. At least without considerable cost. Menendez has been indicted for federal corruption charges.

According to NorthJersey.com, school superintendent John Fauta said any name change would be up to the Board of Education. They renamed the school for Menendez because he has roots in Hudson County.

There are ways of handling such situations. Former Toms River Schools Superintendent Michael Ritacco used to be a big figure in the school system, and had even gotten his name on north High School’s arena. But NorthJersey.com reported that Ritacco was convicted of accepting kickbacks for insurance contracts, so the school covered his name on the arena with a tarpaulin.
