Senator Lightford had the pleasure of hosting St. Joseph High School basketball Coach Gene Pingatore and former St. Joe's basketball player and current Boston Celtics small forward Evan Turner on the Senate floor last week!

The General Assembly passed resolutions designating: Canterbury Street from Mandel Avenue to Westchester Boulevard as "Evan Turner Street," Cermak Road from South Wolf Road to Westchester Boulevard as "Gene Pingatore Road," and Westchester Boulevard from Roosevelt Road to Cermak Road as "Isiah Thomas Boulevard" in honor of the contributions made by all three basketball legends to athletics and the local community.Lightford turner groupphoto
