In an increasingly virtual world, access to the internet is a necessity, not a luxury. However, too many families in GA-14 do not have access to high speed internet. This is holding us back. Our students will be left behind if they cannot access their coursework. New businesses won’t come here and existing businesses won’t grow and survive. Telehealth won’t be an option for our rural communities who are already so far away from hospitals. Any time there is great technical advancement, there are regions that are left behind. I will not let this happen to Georgia’s 14th district. I will take advantage of existing federal funding and support to bring broadband to our communities, and always be an advocate for programs that will positively impact rural America.
