    Verizon is also eliminating all but a few of their engineers and right of way staff. It appears the company will rely on Contracting for engineering services these cuts in personel are beyond the BONE. There are not enough people employeed now as engineers in Verizon to do an adequate job of coverage. Moral is at an all time appears time to leave this ship now rudderless with lowell Mc cadem at the wheel
