Volunteers arrived at the steps of City Hall early Saturday morning and listened to brief talks by cleanup Organizer Juan Gonzalez, Associate DPW Commissioner Lisa Nerich and City Recycling Coordinator Julia Greene, who spoke in Spanish to the mostly Latino group. School Committee Candidate Jared Nicholson also spoke briefly in Spanish.
