Behind the ad sheet

Everyone’s seen him standing at the end of Lowry Mall, passing out Columbia’s signature ad sheets. “No matter rain or snow or shine,” Troy Comley, 49, with a laugh. For two years he has passed out ad sheets in winter, spring, snow, or fall. The students and other pedestrians begin to look familiar as he watches them walk by every Wednesday, he said.
But that’s not all Comley does- he has been an active volunteer for the Grow Grass Organization for five years. This organization seeks to aid the working class by lobbying for working conditions, such as a higher minimum wage and lower pay-day loan interest rates. “They fight for justice,” Comley said.
