Everett McCurdy started this petition to The Providence Journal and

The Providence Journal solicits new subscribers by throwing "sample" newspapers with limited content onto neighborhood streets, porches, steps, driveways and lawns. 

The persons who deliver the unsolicited materials drive up and down city streets and throw the papers from their car windows, often times the papers end up in bushes, on driveways or sidewalks.  Sometimes the paper just ends up in the middle of the street with no apparent destination.

Worse, many citizens, such as myself, have personally reached out to the Providence Journal asking them to stop throwing its unsolicited marketing material onto their properties and after having been told that it would cease, are disappointed to find yet another unsolicited marketing material thrown on their lawn a few days/weeks later.  

This has happened to me personally as well, here's a timeline:

10/24/19: I find unsolicited marketing material from the Providence Journal on my property.  I called the subscriber 800 number and messaged the paper via Facebook instant messenger asking for an immediate resolution.

10/25/19: The paper writes back to me on FB IM saying they've reached out to the manager and the delivery person asking them to stop delivering to my address.

11/2/19:  Unsolicited marketing material from the Providence Journal is found on my property.  I FB messaged the Providence Journal again letting them know. 

11/4/19: I receive a response from the paper, this time saying they have "escalated" the situation to the delivery manager which should "generate a resolution".

11/8/19: Unsolicited marketing material from the Providence Journal is found on my property again.  I send another message to the paper via FB Messenger.

11/15/19: Unsolicited marketing material from the Providence Journal is found on my property again.  I send another message to the paper via FB Messenger, vowing this time, that I will stop them.

The citizens of Cranston should have a legal remedy for opting out of direct marketing of this kind and be free of the nuisance it creates.
