Jim Hildreth, a neighbor to the north, stands up for fiber in a letter in the Advertiser this morning. You don't have to be from Lafayette to support fiber, you only have to be from the city to vote. This project will be good for Acadiana as a whole and, in my judgment, won't long remain confined to city limits.
A low cost fiber optic network is a plan that should be supported by all citizens. The benefits will impact generations socially and economically. Look at the Silicon Valley, Austin, Boston or New Mexico as examples.
Lafayette deserves the best and its future is dependent on each of us for support.
