One of the key economic development hurdles faced in the area is access to broadband for under served communities. Reliable internet access provides a gateway to new opportunities for the economy, education, and countless other areas. Kim Taylor has made it a key priority to expand broadband access in our area so students do not have to travel to get online work completed, farmers can compete and thrive in today’s market, and loved ones can stay connected. Broadband access is a vital element of economic opportunity in rural areas in Virginia and nationwide. Delegate Taylor is committed to ensuring that this 21st-century infrastructural component is available to all in the 82nd District.
