The Stark County Broadband Task Team has been advocating our stance on broadband to a number of public forums over the last two years, as well as meeting with our elected officials, developers, foundations, businesses and other important stakeholders.
We are extremely grateful to the feedback, time and consideration these groups have given us and helped us shape our message. If you would like to us to deliver this message to your group or meet up with us in person, please use our Contact Us link.
