Rep. Moolenaar Visits HomeWorks to Discuss Fiber Deployment

12:06PM September 24, 2021


U.S. Congressman John Moolenaar spent over three hours Sept. 16 learning about how HomeWorks Connect is fulfilling a need for quality rural broadband access, and his visit was featured on the evening news broadcasts of Northern Michigan's popular 9&10 News.


Moolnaar's visit included a presentation in the Blanchard office summarizing the Co-op's fiber internet project, followed by a field tour highlighting several different aspects of the HomeWorks Connect system. The congressman even got to hear from HomeWorks member Doug Chapin, of Chapin Family Farms in Remus, on the life-changing impact HomeWorks Connect high-speed fiber internet service has made for him and his family, both at their farm and at home. HomeWorks CEO Chris O'Neill was highly pleased with the event and proud of the employees involved with making it happen.


"You don't often get more than 15 minutes of time with a representative of Congress, so we recognize how special it was to have three hours of Rep. Moolenaar's time," he said. "It is important for our federal representatives like Rep. Moolenaar to understand the need for broadband in rural areas and that the lack of access to a reliable internet connection affects quality of life. I think our team did a great job of driving that message home."


Moolenaar, who represents Michigan's 4th Congressional district, wanted to learn about how electric cooperatives are working to provide reliable high-speed internet to underserved rural areas, and how the federal government can help.


"I think the government really needs to target resources in an accountable way so that we can actually make investments," he said. "We used to think of internet as maybe a luxury. It's really vital infrastructure."
