Letter: Friedenberg Will Help Solve the Rural Internet Problem

on May 16, 2019 4:00 AM

Recent discussion and newspaper coverage of the lack of rural broadband computer service in Pennsylvania should remind us all of exactly what ineffective government looks like. 

The broadband problem isn’t new. The elected officials who have represented most of northcentral Pennsylvania in the United States Congress for years have known about it for years. Yet, the crisis persists.

It’s obvious these representatives didn’t know how to solve the problem or didn’t want to. Either way, it’s time for new leaders who have the knowledge and the experience to understand and fix the problem of slow Internet access in our public schools and too often, no access, in our homes.

The voters in the 12th Congressional District can take the first step by electing someone who actually understands the vital importance of providing broadband service to our neighbors — someone who has the “bandwidth” to do something about it.

Marc Friedenberg is a computer and cyber-security expert. It’s time to put a technology expert on a technology job. Marc is also an attorney who dealt with big banks that ignored regulations and broke the law, so he’s also used to dealing with complex government procedures.

Spread the good news to your friends who live throughout the 12th District. By voting for Marc Friedenberg on May 21st they will finally have a Congressman who will fight for them and actually go to work to solve the broadband problem.

It’s time!
