Mike's Fight to Rename Toth Park in Easton Connecticut
Get 'Er Done!
NOVEMBER 9 2012 - Thanks to the efforts of the proactive residents of Easton CT, Mike's online blog that has been preserved since his death in 2008, and everyone who keeps fighting on the behalf of Mike and all the other victims of child sexual abuse.... Toth Park is going to be renamed!
We can't express our gratitude enough to Elizabeth W. and the other residents of Easton who petitioned their elected officials to do the right thing and rename the park!!! Mike rests a bit easier today.
NOVEMBER 8 2012 - Our best friend Mike's fight to change the name of Toth Park in Easton Connecticut that is currently named after his childhood sexual abuser is actually being voted on tonight by the Easton CT town council! WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS NAME CHANGE HAPPEN!
Mike endured so much as a child, and it really, really disgusted him that toth park was named after the pedophile that molested him. He endured much with his illness as an adult, but his fight to change toth park's name never faltered. Mike was incensed at the injustice of it and outraged at the thought of all the innocent children of Easton that would play at the park for generations to come. He thought that the kids deserved better!
You can add your voice and help to continue Mike's fight by contacting the Easton town commissioners and urging them to rename Toth Park.
