Hi -

I was very surprised to get a response to my comments. Obviously Dan C 
and probably others have made up their minds /prior to the hearing. /Am 
I naive to think that AT&T and Comcast are contributing to election 
coffers or some other influential but nasty fund?

Good luck,? Bill

Thanks for your comments. I know what a heartfelt wish it is by you and 
others for this city to have its own muni fiber system. ?But in my view 
there is more to this issue that I must consider as a council member ? 
very large city costs and risks for our taxpayers identified by the 
Broadband Task Force itself and a consultant they oversaw for 
development of such a system ?Attached please find an article that will 
appear in tomorrow?s Enterprise outlining these challenges.

In any case, whether or not you agree with me, I welcome your continued 
participation in our city discussions about these matters. ?This is a 
very important matter for all of us.
