Being that Sunnyside is looking to name the soccer field by the police station; some prominent national leaders’ names have surfaced. But, it seems that Sunnyside should be honoring local people who have lived in this area for many years.
One of the finest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing and respecting for years was Oliver Vasquez. Oliver and his family have been fantastic people in this community for years. A good name for that field would be “Oliver Vasquez Memorial Futbol Field!”
