PRECINCT 3 LITTER ROUNDUP

Precinct 3 Commissioner Paul Cothren visited with MUMS NJHS and Student Council and shared a presentation about the “Precint 3 Litter Roundup.”  Commissioner Cothren engaged in a little “trash talk” and shared 10 litter facts, as put forward by TxDOT; one of those facts being approximately 435 million pieces of visible litter accumulate on Texas roadways each year.  This is a huge problem in our precinct.  Commissioner Cothren explained the costs involved in picking up litter in our precinct and how those funds could be used to fix roads that were in dire need.

            The mission of the Precinct 3 Litter Roundup is “Don’t Be Bitter, Help Pick Up Litter.”  There are two round up dates, January 7, 2017 and June 3, 2017.  Both the NJHS and Student Council have committed to participating on January 7th, as a way to give back to our community and make a positive change.  Anyone wanting to participate may contact Commissioner Paul Cothren at casscountybarn3@yahoo.com or 903-796-4502.
