Mount Reagan Proposal Filed on Reagan's 102nd Birthday


Posted by Anna Henderson on Wednesday, February 6th, 2013, 4:37 PM PERMALINK


On Ronald Reagan’s 102nd Birthday, The Mt. Reagan Project  formally submitted an application to the Nevada Board of Geographic Names to dedicate the 4,052-foot summit at the top of Frenchman Mountain – located between the Las Vegas valley to the west and the Lake Mead National Recreation area to the east – as “Mount Reagan.” According to the filing, the proposed Mount Reagan includes a hiking path and views of both the Lake Mead National Recreation area and the Las Vegas valley, including the well-known Strip.

The group is now seeking to gather enough petition signatures to show the support of Nevada residents and others across the country. The group will present these signatures along with the proposal to the Nevada Board of Geographic Names meeting in May.

“Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad,” said Grover Norquist, Chairman of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project. “He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President. Adding his name to the short list of great American presidents who have mountains named after them is an honor richly deserved.”

Currently, there are only 12 former American presidents who have mountains or peaks named after them in the United States.

Forty Governors Declare Feb. 6 "Ronald Reagan Day"


Posted by Anna Henderson on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013, 5:04 PM PERMALINK


Each year the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project asks governors from all 50 states to issue a proclamation declaring Feb. 6 “Ronald Reagan Day” in their respective states. Today, the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project proudly commends the 40 governors -- Republicans and Democrats alike -- who have chosen to honor President Reagan’s 102nd birthday.

“Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad.  He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President,” said Grover Norquist, founder and chairman of the project.

Founded in 1997, the project is committed to preserving the legacy of the 40th President of the United States.  In addition to promoting Feb. 6 as Ronald Reagan Day, the project works to encourage the naming of landmarks, buildings, and roads after President Reagan. Currently there are 108 domestic dedications in 28 states, and 14 international dedications in seven countries.

Examples of domestic dedications include the Reagan Elementary School in Omaha, the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway in Cincinnati, and even a Reagan bust located in a McDonald’s – the Ronald Reagan Memorial Bust in Northport, Alabama.

In Nevada, the Mount Reagan Project is leading an effort to name a mountain in honor of the late president.   

Recent international dedications include a statue in London, a statue in Budapest, and a statue in Warsaw.

All 30 GOP governors are issuing proclamations, as well as nine Democratic governors and one independent governor – Rhode Island’s Lincoln Chafee.  Eight Democratic governors have refused to issue proclamations (including Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick) and two Democratic governors have yet to make a decision (Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee).
