“Local activist Mark Graham this month filed a lawsuit in Sacramento Superior Court against the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD). He seeks to force the school board to hold a hearing on the placement of 4G and 5G cell antennas near the district’s campuses.

AT&T is attempting to bring 5G or the fifth generation of wireless technology to Elk Grove. This technology is marketed as potentially providing speeds 100 times faster than 4G technology.

Graham, who runs the website, www.KeepCellAntennasAwayFromOurElkGroveHomes.com, has been an outspoken opponent of proposed cellphone antennas in Elk Grove and he argues that radiation from those antennas pose a public health hazard.

In his lawsuit, Graham asks that the board approve a resolution opposing new cell antennas near their schools, offer a district staff-produced Electromagnetic Pollution and Injury Awareness Day, and cooperate with the city of Elk Grove in persuading AT&T and Verizon to not place new cell antennas near schools.

“The city, AT&T and Verizon are preying on students,” Graham wrote in a press release. “New cell antennas near schools will cause students to use their phones more at school, taking their minds and attention away from their classes and teachers.”

City-owned light poles have been approved by the city as new cell antenna sites near the following schools: Cosumnes Oaks High School, Franklin High School, Edward Harris Middle School, Toby Johnson Middle School, Laguna Creek High School, Monterey Trail High School and Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School.”
