Prescott mulls naming crosswalk after Sam Steiger

PRESCOTT, AZ (AP) -

The Prescott City Council will consider a proposal Tuesday to name a crosswalk on the city's famed Whiskey Row after the late U.S. Rep Sam Steiger.

The Daily Courier reports that the proposal is meant to commemorate Steiger's famed repainting of the crosswalk in May 1986 after the Arizona Department of Transportation had removed it.

The state's transportation department had decided in April 1986 not to replace the crosswalk after repaving the street.

Steiger faced criminal-damage charges for his part in the repainting, but was later acquitted by a jury.

Steiger died in late September.

He served five terms as a congressman in the 1960s and 1970s, two terms in the Arizona Senate in the early 1960s and won a two-year term as Prescott's mayor in 1999.
