A Sign of Quick Thinking

Acosta 1Murphy’s Law struck Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras this Friday during a street co-naming ceremony for veteran Anthony “Tony” Caminiti, a Corona native and lifelong community advocate.

After a program of warm remarks from members of the Corona community remembering the man and his service to the community, Ferreras gathered with Caminiti’s friends and family to unveil the new street sign bearing his name.

They may have unveiled it a little too forcefully. Their string snapped, leaving the street sign partially covered.

Luckily for Ferreras, she has a quick and nimble District Office Director who stepped up – literally – to save the event. Ivan Acosta shimmied onto the sign pole and unveiled the street sign himself in the time it took Ferreras and company to rearrange for a photo-op on the ground.

We here at QConf are delighted by this evidence of a no-nonsense, fast-acting government body.
