Today, I released a video focused on advocating for high-speed internet access in rural areas of Indiana as part of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s national Millions of Jobs Ahead campaign.
I’m thrilled to be a part of this national call to bring America’s infrastructure into the 21st Century. While access to high-speed internet in rural areas may be an often overlooked part of our nation’s infrastructure, it’s a vital part of everyday life. From children submitting homework assignments online to applying for jobs, access to the internet is necessary for success. With this video, we are continuing a conversation to ensure that as we talk about building up our roads and bridges, high-speed internet access in rural areas is part of our focus.
The video, titled “Rural Internet is Infrastructure” is part of a day of coordinated action featuring hundreds of candidates across the country talking about how bringing America’s infrastructure into the 21st century would create jobs while benefiting our nation, and is featured on the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s website.
