Assure Residents on Cell Tower


To the Editor:

After much debate, the School Committee previously agreed that our community’s rights and safety took precedence over the cell phone companies' greed and convenience.

I want to believe that no matter what the phone companies are now offering, that our School Committee has the courage and integrity to uphold their promise to us and will persevere with their agreement to not renew any of the leases. They should also proceed with plans to dismantle the grotesque antenna and all of its accompaniments.

A statement of assurance from the School Committee would be timely and most welcome to alleviate any further anxiety and restore our confidence. Please, let's put this matter behind us and move on with the business at hand. Barbara Haskins, Newport
