Dee Miller: We should clean up Modesto

December 30, 2013 

I’m spending the holidays in Santa Cruz and will return to my hometown of Modesto after the new year. The morning I left Modesto I was disgusted to find another curbside illegal dump site!

This is such outrageous behavior and is becoming so common that I’ve decided to take some action to clean up my town when I return – even if I’m the only one. Nowhere in Santa Cruz will you find garbage strewn anywhere, not even in the landfills. Come on, fellow citizens, take action! Reporting it isn’t enough; roll up your sleeves and get angry.

Modesto can be a beautiful place if we work together to clean it up.
