FCC Commissioner Starks Visits New Mexico Tribal Communities
The week of Aug 12, Federal Communications Commissioner Geoffrey Starks visited Tribal communities in New Mexico where he discussed the challenges of internet inequality with House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) and community leaders. Commissioner Starks toured the Pueblos of San Felipe and Santo Domingo with Rep Luján, visited the Mescalero Apache Tribe with members of the NM Public Regulation Commission, and met with the leadership of the To’Hajiilee Navajo Chapter. "One of my top priorities is making sure that everyone can access affordable, high-quality broadband,” said Commissioner Starks. “It was important to me to dedicate one of my first trips exclusively to hearing about the challenges faced by Tribal communities, which are among the hardest hit by internet inequality."
