Brandon Nauman started this petition to Placerville City Council

The undersigned people of Placerville, CA and supporters, wish to impress upon our city council that  our town's historic name "Old Hangtown" is outdated and not reflective of past history, nor current values of Placerville, CA.

Another petition incorrectly implies that the city slogan "Old Hangtown" is the best we can do to evoke the history of our great city of Placerville in our great county of El Dorado in our great state of Jefferson, America. Let history show that only three men were ever hanged in Placerville, and that two of them were only half-witted on a good day, leaving one to wonder why we even hold the "Old Hangtown" slogan.  Still, some wish to preserve our history, "warts and all" for all proceeding generations, asserting that history - local, national and global - should never be subject to "cleansing" by those to whom it is uncomfortable.

Well, we could not agree more!  Us Placervillans are extremely good looking, and throughout history have thoroughly enjoyed one another's company, if you know what I mean.  The many brothels and opium dens that once lined Main Street reflect the labors of our city's most industrious residents of days gone by, and the sparkle in the eyes of our most...eh, productive residents of today.  These are fertile grounds we plow, so we start early and repeat often.  As we grow in girth, we grow in number, in stature, in heart, mind and spirit.  Therefore I offer up a new city slogan that we should all be able to get behind - "Old Bangtown."

Please voice to City Council your support for the new city slogan of "Old Bangtown," which both honors our past and reflects the ambitions of today's residents of this great city.
