Standing Up—Rebuild Lafayette North

Rebuild Lafayette North, the organization that sponsored the debate between Mike Stagg and Tim Supple, has decided to endorse the fiber optic project and to urge voters to vote Yes on July the 16th.
...the Committee for Rebuild Lafayette North joins other community leaders and organizations in urging the voters of the City of Lafayette to determine their own destiny and to approve the “Bond Sale Proposition” on Saturday, 16 July 2005, thereby providing the Lafayette Utilities System the opportunity to proceed with expansion of its fiber optic network to every home and business.
The organization cites digital divide, universal service, development, and educational reasons, among others. It's all set up in classic resolution form, replete with many "whereas" and the final, resounding, "therefore." You can get a look at it at Fibre911 which is hosting a copy.
