Exciting News for Western Loudoun County!

 

Dear Friends,

When I ask for your support to keep me working for you, you'll hear me say "Promises Kept and Results Delivered". It is exciting when it's delivery time!

One of the biggest challenges facing the people and businesses of western Loudoun County is the need for high quality and affordable access to the internet. I've been working on this issue for a long time, so it is rewarding to see the pieces of the puzzle coming together. 

In the last 15 months, as schools and businesses closed and forced people to do school and work from home, that need became even more of a necessity.

Earlier this year, I supported passage of HB 2304, which allows Electric Utility Companies more room to cooperate with private broadband providers.

With the help of that legislation, All Points Broadband has formed a plan to access VATI (Virginia Technology Initiative) grants and a share of the $700 million dollars coming to broadband from Virginia's share of ARPA funds.

Tuesday night, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted to use $12.425 million from their local share of the federal ARPA money, along with private funding from Dominion, NOVEC, and All Points Broadband, to match an application for state VATI grant funding.

This funding will put in motion a plan to expand fiber-to-the-home internet to the approximately 8,800 remaining under- and unserved homes and businesses throughout Western Loudoun, without affecting local tax rates.

If you live in Loudoun and need internet service, please complete the information form here to help them in planning this project, and to receive updates as the project moves forward. We should have a final determination regarding the state VATI grant funding by the end of December.

I am hopeful more information will be available soon regarding the possibility of a similar regional grant application for unserved areas of Clarke and Frederick Counties.

It is an honor to hear Jimmy Carr from All Points Broadband acknowledge my work, but I can honestly say he works harder than anyone I know to get us the internet access we need ASAP. Thanks Jimmy Carr!

As always, thank you for the tremendous honor and privilege of serving you in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns!

Sincerely,



I’m looking forward to continuing to finish the job on broadband if that’s what voters decide in November. Click here if you can donate to help me continue to fight for you!
