Verizon contractor's "Bubba" remark stirs contoversy [telecom]

By Elizabeth Dinan

RYE -- A resident [was allegedly] called "Bubba," during a site walk for a proposed cell tower off Brackett Road, [and this] has led to a formal complaint, an apology and a request that the events be entered into the town's public record.

Kathy McCabe, a resident who objects to Verizon's cell tower plans for the 120 Brackett Road location, said the use of the word "Bubba" by Verizon representative Chip Fredette, during a July 27 site walk, was "definitely a condescending term." She described it as a slur, said "it shows poor judgement" and a "lack of impulse control."
