Comcast commercials call for customer comments to council...

You might have seen the TV ads. Comcast is trying to get their customers riled up. They want them to call the city council and complain about the council's proposal to bump monthly cable rates up a buck or two, to preserve some public safety funding. Well, it works both ways. If you know someone who supports the idea of finally making Comcast pay what they should've been paying all along, in order to keep a few more cops and firefighters serving the public, have them call the city council at 625-6255.
