A local State Farm Insurance Agent has been a consistent blight on our streets and neighborhood over the past year and continues to be a repeat offender by hiring workers to paper fliers on car doors promoting her insurance business throughout the communities of Highland Park, Garvanza and Mount Washington.
The activity usually happens late at night when workers strategically place her flyers on car doors, which commonly fall from the vehicles or are discarded by the car owners. Julie Montenegro of State Farm Insurance has engaged in this practice for well over a year now and despite having been contacted by dozens of concerned neighbors regarding the litter nuisance it causes on our streets, she still persists. Sadly, it seems that Ms. Montenegro views our local community as that of a parking lot of a big box discount retailer.
On Monday morning of this week whilst out for a stroll I collected over 20 of her discarded fliers on a single block in Garvanza. Our neighborhood deserves better than this.
Ms. Montenegro, there are far more professional ways to promote your business in the community--perhaps consider advertising on one of our local community blogs or in a local newspaper. I’m sure you would appreciate our business but we ask you to appreciate our neighborhood foremost.
