SJ Vietnamese community unveils "Little Saigon" signs

SAN JOSE, Calif.

Naming the area "Little Saigon" ignited a controversy four years ago. Council Member Madison Nguyen opposed the idea and suggested calling it the "Saigon Business District." That sparked a passionate recall campaign against Nguyen, led by exiles of the former South Vietnam.

Nguyen kept her seat, but lost the sign battle. She also did not attend Saturday's ceremony.
