    Naming THE municipal building after Dinkins...?

    Naming THE NYC Municipal Building after Dinkins is like naming a school library after a non-performing student.

    During his final days in office, Dinkins made last-minute negotiations with the sanitation workers, presumably to preserve the public status of garbage removal. Rudy Giuliani, who defeated Dinkins in the 1993 mayoral race, blamed Dinkins for a “cheap political trick” when Dinkins planned the resignation of Victor Gotbaum, Dinkins’ appointee on the Board of Education, thus guaranteeing Gotbaum’s replacement six months in office.[20] Dinkins also signed a last-minute 99-year lease with the USTA National Tennis Center.

    he was just not strong enough to resist the evil influences, and he made decisions based on what he was urged to do, by people who did not have the city’s welfare in best interest. He should not be named after for the city. let his family do so
