Good men are remembered. Great men are immortalized — even if it’s just in a neighborhood road sign.
One county in Nevada has voted to rename one of their roads after former President Donald Trump, the Washington Examiner reported. Lyon County Commissioners will change Old Dayton Valley Road to “Pres. Trump Way” after the measure passed 4-1 Thursday.
“He was a good leader as far as I’m concerned, he supported law enforcement, he supported our military, he supported the rurals,” GOP commissioner, Ken Gray, explained for the change. Trump won the county with nearly 70% of the vote in the 2020 presidential election and all of the county’s politicians are Republicans.

Because the left has so vilified the former president, a KSNV-TV reporter asked whether it was appropriate given that Trump is viewed as a polarizing figure. “Show me one street or building or bridge that wasn’t named after somebody that had controversy associated with them,” Gray said.
The street in question is only about half a mile long and doesn’t have any residences. The only addresses that would need to reflect the change are Dayton High School, the public library, and a senior center.
Trump was indeed popular with rural Americans, and that popularity translated to surprising gains like his increased showing among Latino voters in the 2020 presidential election, The Hill reported. The left has difficulty understanding Trump’s appeal, but his straight-talking, no-nonsense approach is popular with voters outside of major cities.
Still, the left continues to attempt to destroy Trump’s legacy by pinning the Jan. 6 incursion at the U.S. Capitol on the former president, according to the New York Post. However, many of his supporters have not left the man or the movement behind through any of the attacks.
It’s a good sign for Trump that this rural county is willing and able to honor him in such a way at a time when leftists are busily working to convince Americans the prosperity of his term was just an illusion. However, the folks who are not enticed by the city lights are also not easily convinced by the establishment media’s slick rhetoric either.
