What is your top priority?

"My two top priorities involve looking into the current issues with our high-speed internet services in Douglas County. With so many students east of 72nd with connectivity issues, it's important the PSC looks into what is causing it. I have recently been in touch with T-Mobile to address the OPS connectivity issues and have been assured of 5 towers across Omaha being updated in the next month. I am also going to focus on updating our current wireless 911 services. The Next Generation services will allow for faster response times, pinpoint location accuracy, and allow better text-to-dispatch as well as many other features that will benefit those who are speech impaired."

What is your top priority?

"I will continue to work to improve the reliability of 911 and expand text to 911, creating a more equitable distribution of state funding to all districts across Nebraska, especially in Omaha. I will continue to work at the state and federal level to expand broadband and improve reliability by developing policies that support a robust telecommunications network. I will also continue to be an advocate for policies that increase affordability for telephone and internet services."
