Letter to the Editor
Wallace didnít fix AT&T

June 27, 2012

Dear Editor,

I find it very interesting that Mr. Neil Wallace is "pleased with the increased citizen participation in the government brought on by the Citizens Public TV Access Committee" and "the committee has 'invigorated the cable service'" ("Trustee Wallace runs for top seat," June 6).

Township subscribers to AT&T U-verse do not have access to the Independence Township cable channel even though they have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars through franchise and PEG fees.

I first brought this to SupervisorDavid Wagner's attention in May 2008 and was told that AT&T U-verse access would be operational by June 2008.

In July 2009, I notified the entire Township Board, including Mr. Wallace, that after repeated assurances that the "fix" is almost completed, collecting money for services NOT provided was not very ethical. To date, we AT&T users still do not have access. I can only assume our participation is not wanted.
