re: Proposed Sale of Verizon to FairPoint

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to you about the current proposed sale of Verizon to FairPoint. I am very concerned that the Vermont Department of Public Service, the Maine Public Advocate, the New Hampshire Consumer Advocate, the staff of the New Hampshire Public Utility Commission and the AARP have all recommended that state regulators deny the transaction as proposed because it places consumers and communities at significant risk. I am also very concerned about the potential job losses to hard working Vermonters.

As the Vermont Public Service Board nears the end of its regulatory review of the proposed sale of Verizon's operations to FairPoint, I urge you to ensure that Vermonters are protected adequately and that all of the critical concerns that have been voiced be addressed.
