For three quarters of a century, the Communications Act has defined a successful communications policy as fostering ubiquitous, affordable service available on a nondiscriminatory basis in competitive markets. The penetration of phone service of over 90% for a quarter of a century in this country, as compared to penetration rates in most of the rest of the world, was widely touted as an example of our success as a nation and as critical to maintaining a unified society in which all had access to a technology critical for health, safety, and economic advancement.
Lisa Gonzalez has been a native Minnesotan since the day she set foot here in 1990. She is thrilled to be working on examining and advancing the concept of connectivity, an integral and expanding part of our economy and our quality of life, through community broadband.
Lisa's background includes freelance journalism, law, state politics, higher ed, crafting design, and her favorite role - being a parent. She has learned boatloads from each and every experience and is excited about this new adventure. Lisa and her two daughters live for camping, biking, and hanging out and share their home with a cat named Trixie.
