FORT BRAGG, Calif. (AP) — A rugged Northern California coastal city named for a Confederate general may ask voters to change the city’s name.
The council of the city of Fort Bragg in Mendocino County is debating Monday whether to put the renaming issue on the November ballot.
Fort Bragg is named after Braxton Bragg. Supporters of a name change say the name honors a racist who has nothing to do with Northern California.
Opponents say a name change would be costly and is unnecessary.
