LIVINGSTON, Ala. (WTOK) - Recently elected democratic Senator Doug Jones made an appearance during conference in west Alabama.
The tech summit held at the University of West Alabama discusses the importance of upgrading technology and internet access for those who live in rural communities. Senator Doug Jones spoke about making sure everyone in the state of Alabama has the same opportunities as others.
“You cannot progress as a community if you do not have that access. It’s important to education, health care and first responders. We are doing everything we can at the federal level and the state. We are working together to get it everywhere in the state of Alabama,” Jones says.
Jones says he hope to help his state of Alabama through higher grants to help fund such technology.
