Marie’s home town discusses naming a street after her
ÖSTRA LJUNGBY – The social democratic party in Marie Fredriksson’s home town Östra Ljungby proposes that a street should be named after their only world-famous celebrity so far. The non-socialists are against the proposal.
“It’s not about Marie Fredriksson. It’s about the fundamental rule of not naming after living people,” says cultural board’s chairman Jan Lindberg. “Also, there’s no ‘vacant’ street right now.”
Rune Persson, one of the members behind the proposal, has a different opinion. “It’s always a good time for Östra Ljungby to highlight Marie Fredriksson. It doesn’t have to be a street or a market place. It can as well be a school or some institution.”
The board had a long discussion on the issue, but didn’t make a decision yet.
