FCC Commisioner Geoffrey Starks Visits KC

The Kansas City Coalition for Digital Inclusions was pleased to welcome newly-appointed FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks to our last meeting. He made some remarks and took a number of questions from the Coalition membership. We were pleased to see him vocalized support for both the Lifeline and E-Rate programs and appears to be a committed champion of digital inclusion.

His appearance was part of a planned visit to Kansas City (where Starks grew up) and was largely facilitated by Angela Siefer at the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. Angela wrote a brief blog post about Starks' visit for the NDIA website.
