The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - BY PAUL HER­RIDGE

Coun­cil­lor Mike Bren­nan didn’t mince his words when it came to lit­ter­bugs dur­ing the town coun­cil meet­ing in Marys­town on Mon­day, June 4.

“I’m just aghast at the ig­no­rance of peo­ple,” Bren­nan said, la­belling some in the town as “pigs” with “no re­spect.”

Clean-up week was held re­cently in Marys­town, and Satur­day, June 2 was deemed a day for ev­ery­one to come to­gether to do their part.

There was a strong re­sponse from many res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity to tidy up around town, Bren­nan ac­knowl­edged, mak­ing sure to thank those who were in­volved.

Ac­cord­ing to Bren­nan, less than 24-hours later, how­ever, some places were messy again. He noted an area of the Penin­sula Mall park­ing lot in par­tic­u­lar that had been cleaned up and then looked like noth­ing had been done.
