Rep Rob Ecklund talks up broadband

I’m a couple weeks late on this notice – but I happened to notice that even after elections and before the legislative session began, some policymakers (Representative Rob Ecklund) are talking up broadband in the Lake County News Chronicle

“Right now we need to make sure that we are standing up for working families in every corner of the state,” Ecklund said. “Too many people are struggling to get by because our economy favors the well-connected and the special interests. Workers struggle to find housing near employers, local businesses struggle competing with a global economy that depends on access to broadband, and middle-class families struggle to find jobs that pay a livable wage.”
