Al Leppo started this petition to Mayor Leonard Boyd Curry and

The 3 year occupation of Florida by the French from 1562 to 1565 is an ugly scar on our state.

  • The name Huguenot Memorial Park needs to be removed because French occupation should never be memorialized.
  • It should be renamed San Mateo Memorial Park in honor of Pedro Menéndez de Avilés who liberated our area from French occupation.
  • Also any public display of the flag of France in Florida on public property should be discouraged.
  • Jean Ribault High School should be renamed also to remove the French scar from that school.
  • San Mateo High School is a possible name but any and all high school renaming of controversial people should be voted on by residents in the community.
