LOS FELIZ — Only a few days before termed-out District 4 Councilman Tom LaBonge leaves office, some fellow council members want to give him a going away present: Tom LaBonge Square. The intersection of Tracy and St. George streets next to John Marhsall High – LaBonge’s alma mater – would be named in his honor under a council motion presented by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell.
LaBonge, who was the captain of the varsity football team, has maintained close ties to the campus since he graduated, helping repair the quake damaged school’s Gothic-style buildings and constructing a new football and track field. The motion notes that LaBonge frequently asks local residents what high school they attended, and, in response, ” he will correctly name the mascot.” Says the motion:
It is only appropriate that the intersection of Tracy and St. George streets be named after the proud Barrister alum and accomplished Councilmember TOM LABONGE for all his numerous contributions to John Marshall High School during his lifelong devotion to public service.
The motion, if adopted by the full council, would see the installation of permanent “Tom LaBonge Square” signs at the intersection.
