And the City Council postponed its vote on whether to change the name of Interstate Avenue to Cesar Chavez Avenue.  The item was originally scheduled for this morning’s city council meeting, but will now be voted on tomorrow at 3 pm at City Hall.

With all the controversy surrounding the renaming, KBOO news would like to take a short moment to give a little background as to who Cesar Chavez was. 

Cesar Chavez founded the Farm Labor Organizing Committee in the early 1960s, and used Gandhian-style non-violence and boycotts to bring about better working conditions for farmworkers in California and around the country.
