I am expressing my opinion after reading an article titled “ Our View: City of Modesto could use a little bit more TLC” (Opinion, Feb. 27).

To my city’s mayor, Mr. Marsh,

I spent a very fun evening at your family business, McHenry Bowl, on March 1. I have no complaints about the cost of my entertainment or treatment by any of your employees. I did leave with an unfavorable opinion of you, though.

Mr. Marsh, in your State of the City address, do you recall saying, “Your city needs you more than ever”? What about urging residents to “clean up litter and graffiti”? How about “the Modesto Garden Club commits hours and dollars to making Modesto beautiful”?

My questions to you ... Why is your prominently located business front and parking lot cluttered with litter? How come every parking island is covered in tall weeds?

My suggestion: Stop pointing fingers.
