I have no problem with offering naming rights to either individuals or corporations.

The backside of the new Public Safety Building which butts up against the railroad tracks might be a great place for selling naming rights or advertising. You would only see it from a train.

This is not a waste of time so long as it makes money for the City of Palo Alto.
