New bill sets to dedicate portion of Highway 101 to 'SLOStringer'

Matthew Frank died in a crash on March 2017

AVILA BEACH, Calif. - Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham introduced a resolution that would dedicate a portion of U.S. Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo County from Avila Beach Drive to Spyglass Drive to Matthew "SLOStringer" Frank.

Frank was a photographer and news gatherer who died in a car accident on the morning of March 21, 2017 while on his way to report on a house fire in Atascadero. 

"He chased breaking news across the Central Coast, reporting on social media with tremendous talent," said Cunningham. "I speak on behalf of all San Luis Obispo County when I say he will be dearly missed."  

Hundreds of community members including law enforcement and firefighters honored Frank during a recent memorial service, said Legislative Director Taylor Robert Melody.
