A road named after him? How about the unpaved section of NW Old Burnt Store?

Here’s the truth. When you do something, anything: volunteering, working, supporting, your city and your neighborhoods, you are, hopefully and supposedly, doing it for the benefit of your fellow citizens, not because you hope that somewhere down the road they will name a street, beach, park, or building after you!

What is this moose dung about naming the Police Department Building after one man? I don’t know Roger Butler and don’t care what he has done. The Police Department building should be named just THAT to honor ALL the men and women who have walked the Blue Line to protect the citizens of Cape Coral! Period. You want a giant blue sign on the CCPD that says “Butler Building”? No heffing way! That building was bought and paid for by ALL the people of Cape Coral to accommodate ALL the outstanding, valiant, brave officers that put their lives on the line for us every day. Such a building should NEVER be named after some lame politico. David Wagoner, who works at CCPD, and Lee Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Widman, who-lived in Cape Coral, took bullets to protect us! Widman died! If naming the building after someone deserving is so important to you—why not name it after them? But, oh wait . . . . they are just the worker bees and they don’t

Forget about the park. Roger Butler should have a road named after him for all he has done for our community.

It is dangerous to name parks and buildings after people who are still alive...just ask Jacksonville about their fountain.
