KitsapQuestion

Q:  Seattle’s Mayor Murray wants the City’s Internet access to be fast and affordable.  To what lengths is he willing to go to maintain Seattle’s high tech industry edge?

A:  “We may learn that the only way we can truly have the internet system this City needs, is by building it ourselves.  If we find that building our own municipal broadband is the best way forward for our citizens and for our City, then I will help lead the way.”  Ed Murray, Seattle Mayor
