Letters to the Editor

Fracas over fiber: What I believe | Letters

As controversy swirls regarding the upcoming OPALCO Board election, I want to make my position regarding OPALCO’s role in broadband as clear as possible:

I strongly support OPALCO playing a significant role in bringing true broadband to OPALCO members and to the larger islands community.

I support the Co-op’s taking the time necessary to examine very carefully all aspects of that role from the standpoint of prudent fiscal standpoint of prudent fiscal policy and enhancing, not harming, island businesses.

I personally believe that the ultimate design will go one of two ways: either OPALCO will not enter the full-fledged ISP business, or, if it does so, it will be as a separate entity dealing with the Co-op on the same basis as would any other member.

I love this community, and want it to move forward in the best possible way.

I ask the members to return me to the Board for another term.

Glenna Hall, San Juan Island
