NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut city has tweaked its sign for Paul Manafort Drive because the name agitated some residents.

The Hartford Courant reports workers put up a new sign this week to make clear the street in New Britain is named after ex-Mayor Paul Manafort, not his son who worked for Donald Trump. The sign says Paul Manafort Sr. Drive.

The younger Manafort was Trump’s presidential campaign chairman and was indicted. Some residents then pushed for the street alongside Central Connecticut State University to be renamed.

Republican Mayor Erin Stewart said the street name would stay because it honors the elder Manafort. Stewart on Thursday called the new sign a “small clarification.”

Jurors in Alexandria, Virginia, began deliberating in the younger Manafort’s financial fraud trial Thursday. Manafort’s defense says he left the particulars of his finances to others.
