Miguel Solis is one of the nine people running in the upcoming mayoral election next month.

To win our hearts and our votes, Solis has proposed the city renames the portion of Houston St. that runs next to American Airlines Center after the recently retired Dirk Nowitzki.

An unrelated online petition to rename a road or highway in honor of Nowitzki was also created last week. If a highway were to be renamed, TxDOT and state officials would have to be involved, but the city council could rename a street within city limits.

Election day for the mayoral race is May 4.
