On June 20th, L.A. City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr.introduced a motion to rename “Rodeo Road” to “Obama Boulevard”. Rodeo Road runs through the 10th Council District and was where then-Senator Obama’s first Los Angeles campaign rally took place in 2007. The 10th Council District is home to "Presidents Row" with Washington Boulevard, Adams Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard, and now it will also be home to Obama Boulevard.
Moving quickly, City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday, June 28 to rename the street. This vote begins the process which includes getting public input.
