Minnesota State Board openings that could use broadband proponents

I just like to seed the boards with people who are interested in and understand the role that ubiquitous broadband should have on any effort to increase services online . So I’m sharing information on state boards that I think/hope might be of interest to some readers. Good luck – and please help folks who move services online understand that the unfunded mandates inherent in that move is infrastructure and access to computers. So helping to support broadband providers, libraries and other public access to computers and digital literacy should be part of the plan!
