DeGraff sponsored Bill No. 32-0146 to rename General Gade, from Veteran's Drive to Sike Gade, as Irvin "Brownie" Brown Sr. Street. Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed it into law in July.
Gade is the Danish word for street. That's how long General Gade's been around in the Savan neighborhood, one of St. Thomas' oldest communities.
Brownie was born and grew up there, among friends and family. A lot like the folks who showed up at the club house for the Retired Police Organization to celebrate the occasion.
