Letter: Thank you to VEA, Suddenlink for dedicated service

A special “Thank you” to all the Valley Electric guys and Suddenlink guys who spent the better part of Thursday afternoon, Jan. 5, replacing the two 52-year-old power poles on West Wilson Road that were knocked down by an inattentive female driver.

They worked hard to get electricity on just after dark. The cable was also connected and all was well.

Thank you again!

Betty and Spike LaComb
