Washington, D.C. – Connect Americans Now (CAN) National Spokesperson Zachary Cikanek released the following statement as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) works to establish its newly announced Precision Ag Connectivity Task Force.

“CAN believes Betsy Huber, president of the National Grange, would make a great candidate for the Federal Communication Commission’s newly established Precision Agriculture Connectivity Task Force. Her considerable experience on broadband deployment from serving on Chairman Pai’s Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee, as well as in her work with the National Grange, make her a great fit.”

“Betsy has a depth of experience working with grassroots activists and leaders for underserved agricultural communities. She understands the challenges as well as the opportunities of expanding broadband connectivity in these areas.”

“Connect Americans Now is excited to see the work the FCC’s Precision Agriculture Connectivity Task Force does for broadband deployment across rural America.”

Join our fight to bring broadband to all rural Americans. Tell Washington to take action to bridge the digital divide now!
