I put together the following document in preparation for an upcoming meeting in Hawthorne but want to share it here so others can use it in their communities.
The first page outlines how the current phone book delivery practices hurt communities and shows that the industry is resisting change.
The second page presents four options for addressing this spam problem. They’re ranked by what I consider to be their potential effectiveness (but also their degree of difficulty in enforcing).
Please pass thing along to community groups, city & state officials who are in a position to do something about this ongoing print spam problem.
