No Conflict of Interest | Letter

In his recent letter, Bill Wertz envisions the worst.  His allegations of my having a conflict of interest have no merit.  He jumps to the erroneous conclusion that I knew what the future would bring.

In 2007, I was concerned about a proliferation of numerous unsightly cell phone towers that might be needed to serve the difficult topography of our islands.  It was not until 2012, two years after I left the County Council, that Opalco even began to consider the expansion of Opalco’s fiber optic communications system to include access for joint-use wireless facilities using existing power poles.  Hindsight may make for 20-20 vision.
