Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-35) issued the following statement after T-Mobile ended its plans to build a cellular tower on El Manor Avenue in Westchester, a community in her district:

“I am proud to have worked with residents of the neighborhood off of El Manor Avenue, area businesses and UWFACT (United Westchester Families Against Cellular Tower) to achieve this victory.  I thank all in the community who have written, called and emailed my office and T-Mobile regarding this issue, and I especially must acknowledge the Yip family for raising awareness of this issue. We succeeded in demonstrating to T-Mobile the extent of neighborhood opposition to a cell phone tower in this residential neighborhood, and it got the message loud and clear.”
