I am writing a letter to the editor concerning the 5G towers discussed by Susan Heavilin in your editorial page in the May 15-21, 2019 edition.

I attended the City Council meeting of May 21. Everyone who spoke was opposed to the towers and the City Council was unanimously opposed to this installation.

Unfortunately the City attorney informed us that the Federal Communications Committee (FCC) has decided that we the people were not allowed to question the safety of these towers. If we tried to stop them, the City would be sued by the companies that wanted to install them and the FCC would support their suit.

Concerning safety/health issues, I recall seeing reports on the news that the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) has endorsed the safety of the new Boeing computer operated aircraft but when they were operated in Ethiopia, within the last two months, two of these computer controlled airliners have flown themselves and hundreds of passengers into the ground. So much for FAA approval.

Now the FCC wants us to install one of these towers behind my home. I am concerned about my health. My other concern involves crossing Orange Avenue when tourist season arises and theses self-driving cars come flying down Orange Avenue at 150 miles per hour. Because as we all know, with a computer nothing can possibly go wrong.

Yours truly,
