Delegate Dave A. LaRock (R-33) and Purcellville Mayor Kwasi Fraser will host a town hall meeting on rural broadband in Purcellville Thursday, May 16.
The event will bring state and local elected officials together with the public and representatives of broadband providers in the area.
“Purcellville is challenged with a unique set of needs as an economic hub for both rural and urban services,” Fraser said. “From my twenty years of experience in the telecommunication industry, I understand that the development and accessibility of broadband will have a major effect on the quality of life in Western Loudoun for both commercial and personal purposes.”
“Broadband facilitates business activity, education, entertainment, healthcare, and other vital services available through the internet,” LaRock said. “Meeting with the public in this broadband town hall, and others in the future, will help identify and address the need to deploy broadband into all rural areas in the district.”
The session will include a formal presentation and discussion. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the presentation and discussion run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The town hall will be held at the Carver Center, 200 Willie Palmer Way in Purcellville.
