Don't change the name
I am a proud native of America. I am a proud native resident of a home on the banks of the Boardman River. I am proud to be one of many people of past, current and upcoming generations who have and will continue to take responsibility as keepers and enhancers of the spirituality of the Boardman River.
I am opposed to changing the name of the Boardman River. For generations, our community, our children, grandchildren, selves and beloved ancestors have respectively known this waterway as the Boardman River. Let's keep something about this great river the same as it is now. God knows this pristine body of water has recently endured massive change — some probably OK and some quite questionable.
