(Minneapolis, MN) — Minneapolis City Councilman Andrew Johnson is backing the renaming of a street named after a former city leader who embraced some of the beliefs of Adolf Hitler. A petition drive has already gathered 750 signatures to take the name Charles Dight off the street sign in South Minneapolis. He was a council member in 1914 and supported Hitler’s plan to sterilize those with mental disabilities. City Council and Mayor Jacob Frery would have to approve any proposed name change.
