GTA: Obama Way


A vehicle was reported audaciously stolen on Obama Way on Feb. 11 in Seaside, California around 5 p.m.

The Seaside Police Department reported the vehicle theft at 5:17 at the 700 block of Broadway Ave—which is also named Obama Way—and Alhambra St.

The Seaside City Council voted unanimously in March 2010 to double-name Broadway Street as Obama Way. The signs were paid for by a citizen group.

"I thought it was a good idea," said Councilman Ian Oglesby at the time. "It's important for our citizens to be able to look at our street signs and aspire to be all they can be."
