I've been trying, with no success, to get the people who distribute the Chandler Republic to stop throwing free copies of their newspaper in my driveway once or twice a week or so.
I don't want it.
I called customer service on two occasions and politely asked them to stop. I was assured it would stop.
Obviously it has not.
I tersely called the Southeast Valley General Manager of the Chandler Republic, Mr. Paul Maryniak at 602-444-7785 and told his voicemail that I didn't want him littering my driveway and insisted that he stop delivering the paper. I wondered aloud if I would need to collect the papers and redeliver them to his home address in Mesa, but that did not get him to stop.
I don't understand. He is involved in nice charities, being on the boards of Save The Family Foundation, The Mesa Arts Center Foundation, East Valley partnership, and others. One would think that with that degree of civic responsibility he would have the power to stop the delivery of the newspaper to my home -- but apparently not.
So, dear blog readers, I am soliciting ideas on how to (legally) get the powers that be at the newspaper to stop littering my driveway.
