Report: Mechanicsville Risks Losing Name Unless Town Recruits More Mechanics

A new report out today from the Virginia Department of Naming has warned the Hanover County town of Mechanicsville to import more automobile and machinery specialists or run the risk of losing the right to its identity.

“The economic recession has not fared well in Mechanicsville, which itself has witnessed a drop of nearly 63 percent in auto, construction equipment and other industrial machine operators,” said Paul Bechtel, commissioner of the VDN, which requires the town of 35,000 to contain at least one mechanic for every 10 residents. “If Mechanicsville doesn’t step up their game in the machine worker arena, we will be forced to pull the word from the name entirely.”

Though MechanicsvilleĀ faces the possibility of losing its name, Bechtel noted that there are several new naming options for the town as it has seen tremendous job growth in recent years of garbage men, prostitutes, and people named Phil.
