Councilor Ken Sanchez just told us who his supplier was.

Looks like renaming the park in order to find a new supplier is his real goal.

Forget it Ken, we have enough builders and parks, streets etc.named after crooked politicians and others not worthy of such things.

Find a upstanding citizen or soldier who went above and beyond to save others in war but gave the ultimate sacrifice in doing so to name the park after.

But not a convict, drug user, gang member, NO WAY.

Why doesn't he just suggest the park be called "Needle Park"? Same difference.

Johnny Tapia was a interesting person...there was much to look up to...there was some not to look up to...

Perhaps a park named after him with a tatoo parlor?

Just another junkie being honored by a NM politician, what a role model - both of them!

Perhaps a dental clinic in honor of the toothless junkie.

Or an animal abuse shelter.

A statue of a hypo needle and like of coke would do nicely.
