[A part of] Buffalo is having a renaissance, and rebounding into a new world. A key element of that new world is the internet.
If Buffalo ever hopes to re-build a diverse, robust economy, a key element will be our home-grown businesses having unfettered access to this means of commerce. The end of Net Neutrality--currently being challenged by a number of States' Attorneys General, including New York's--poses a threat to that vision.
People who live in poverty find it harder to access what to many are common goods. Many in Buffalo, who have not yet felt the benefits of the Renaissance (or are being displaced by them), can tell us what happens when you don't have fair, strategic access to critical resources.
We need to find for this access together.
