“On behalf of all of us at ACA Connects and from here in the Boot Heel of rural Missouri, I just want to take a moment to congratulate and welcome Sen. Maria Cantwell as the first woman to chair the Senate Commerce Committee.
“It is indeed a great privilege for us to work with you, and we look forward to working with you leader-to-leader on important communications issues that truly unite our country.
“Whether Missouri or Washington, we are connected in so many ways that affect the lives of families, students, communities and local businesses. Chairwoman Cantwell, we are committed at ACA Connects to serve all of our communities, and you can count on our and my productive and straight-forward voice to help you every step of the way!”
ACA Connects President and CEO Matthew M. Polka commented: “In Sen. Cantwell’s home state, hundreds of thousands of people live and work in communities in the Interstate-90 corridor between Seattle and Spokane, and they need quality broadband. We have members investing hundreds of millions of dollars to improve broadband networks across Washington. The commitment to delivering high-performance Internet service will support American adults who are increasingly working from home and their children who are taking classes online and doing so much more enabled by broadband.”
