Congressman Lantos visits the tunnel construction site in May

We received an interesting suggestion from a reader:

In the light of Congressman Tom Lantos’ announcement yesterday that he will not seek re-election because of illness [County Times], I would really like to see the Tunnel named for him. If others agree with me, I think the place to start would be e-mailing State Senator Leland Yee. Lantos has represented us for almost thirty years and was highly influential in funding and getting the work under way on Devil’s Slide.

After visiting the tunnel construction site with Congressman Lantos back in May, it was clear to us how closely he identifies with the project.
