Schamore: county must get creative to attract broadband

By Dave Taylor

Democrat Representative Dean Schamore says that discussions during the monthly Hancock County Industrial Foundation meeting Tuesday reinforced the hope that the county could have high-speed internet someday.

Schamore visited the Hancock Clarion after listening to a presentation by Hilda Gay Legg, from the United States Department of Agriculture, where she said rural areas need to take control of their own destiny and not wait for an outside program or entity to show up with internet.

“There may be some opportunity to get some outside money,” Schamore said, “but really her message was that it’s really up the community, up to the county, to try to really push this thing. It’s not just going to happen.”
