Name the San Francisco Bridge after
Emperor Norton I

WHEREAS, we issued our decree ordering the citizens of San Francisco and Oakland to appropriate funds for the survey of a suspension bridge from Oakland Point via Goat Island; also for a tunnel; and to ascertain which is the best project; and whereas the said citizens have hitherto neglected to notice our said decree; and whereas we are determined our authority shall be fully respected; now, therefore, we do hereby command the arrest by the army of both the Boards of City Fathers if they persist in neglecting our decrees.

Given under our royal hand and seal at San Francisco, this 17th day of September, 1872.

Sign the petition to Name the San Francisco Bridge afterEmperor Norton I:   click here

In 1872, Emperor Norton I, Protector of the United States and Mexico, asked for funds from both citizens of San Francisco and Oakland to survey the construction of a suspension bridge between the two cities. Following the intent of his decree, the construction began in 1933 and completed in 1936. As the retro-fitting of the bridge is near completion in 2013, it is only fitting to honor the man, who is a legend of San Francisco history, by naming it after him.

AND, in addition to voting to name the bay bridge after Emperor Norton I, you can also vote against naming it after Willie Brown   click here
