Brenton Vinson started this petition to San Jose City Council

The statue of Christopher Columbus was voted to be removed from San Jose. I propose a statue of a long time San Jose resident and cultural icon be put in its replacement. To associate Joey's triumphs as being superior to the tyrant Christopher Columbus wake of pain and suffering.

Joey Chesnut is a competitive eater that San Jose can be proud of for centuries to come. Hes hard working, dedicated and world renowned athlete who set multiple world records. He deserves to be immortalized for eating 75 hot dogs, bun included. He is decent, humble and someone who truly loves San Jose. San Jose is to Joey Chestnut as a bun is to a hot dog.
