Fifth grader campaigns Becker County Commissioners for better broadband

I’ve heard it repeated often – If you’re going to keep kids in your town, you’re going to want broadband. I just didn’t realize we were talking about fifth graders! Here’s a letter shared with permission, but with the name blocked out, from a fifth grade in Becker County to the County Commissioners…

Dear County Commissioners,

Hello. My name is C.M. I an in the 5th grade and 11 years old. I live on Pearl Lake Drive. Today I am writing about the lack of internet. I use the internet for my school work and I will use it a lot more as I get older. I like to play video games too. Our internet is limited and expensive. I hope you take this into consideration. We need better internet for our neighborhood.

Thank you for your time,

C.M
