In its never-ending, uphill battle to change its image, the city of Yonkers is looking for a new logo– and a contest has been started to do just that.
Residents are asked to send in design suggestions to YoLoGo@yonkersny.gov no later than 5 p.m. September 4. The possibilities are endless. Personally, I like something with a theme that touches on political reform. My slogan would be “Kick Out The Clowns,” with a NO CLOWN ZONE logo courtesy of www.ihateclowns.com.
People will get a chance to vote on their favorite design between September 5 and October 5 by logging onto the city’s facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/cityofyonkers. The top three will be presented for a final selection by the City Council on Oct. 23.
Here’s some more possible slogans.
“Yonkers Where True Love Conquers”
“Yonkers– That’s Plural for Yonker”
And the old standby…
“The City of Hills Where Nothing Is On The Level.”
