Chandler First Grader Catches Chandler City Employee Littering

On 04 March 2004, the East Valley section of the Arizona Republic reported about a first grade girl who caught a Chandler city employee littering (he threw a cigarette butt out of his vehicle). AzLitter.org was impressed with this girl (and her dad) and submitted the following Letter to the Editor, which they published on 12 March 2004.

   Subject: 1st grade litter

   AzLitter.org would like to Thank the East
   Valley Political Insider for telling us
   about OliviaB (and her dad) and their efforts 
   to minimize litter.

   AzLitter.org would like to Thank the city
   of Chandler for acting on Olivia's concerns.
   They are reminding us that it may be one
   small cigarette butt, but a billion pennies
   is a lot of money and a billion butts is
   a lot of litter.

   Finally, and most importantly, AzLitter.org 
   would like to give Olivia of huge Thank You 
   for caring about litter.
