TACOMA: State Farm isn’t my good neighbor

While the City of Tacoma may have welcomed State Farm to the former Frank Russell building, it may have neglected to offer some housekeeping rules to the new inhabitants.

If you wander down A Street, past 909, you will find an alleyway overflowing with discarded cigarette butts and other litter from State Farm employees. Apparently State Farm doesn’t think it needs to supply its workers with a smoking area or clean up after its employees who choose to smoke in the alley.

Some will remember the jingle, “And like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” State Farm is here but is being anything but a good neighbor.
