I read AnnMarie Cornejo’s article, “Cuesta art gallery to be renamed” (Nov. 14) and was appalled. Another government taxpayer building being renamed after a dead donor.
If the gift of $250,000 from the Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust had conditions attached, then it should have been refused. If it truly was unconditional, then the employee at Cuesta College that decided to rename a public art building after a donor should be fired.
Public-owned taxpayer buildings should not become cemeteries for donors by placing their names on buildings because of a so-called donation. Publicly funded universities and colleges should not become memorials to any donors.
