Big Island Meet and Greet with Lt. Governor Candidate Gary Hooser

I noticed that Lt. Governor candidate Gary Hooser is having a “meet and greet talk story session” on the Big Island coming up.

Saturday he will be at the Hilo’s Farmers Market for a bit of time.  Then he will move on to The Hilo Burger Joint to have a great burger (yeah, yeah… they’re a sponsor) and talk story with other folks.

The word on the “streets” is that he will be at the Hilo Burger Joint at 1:30!

He is also meeting and greeting with at a few other sites, however, the Hilo Burger Joint one is the one that caught my interest.

Hawaii Island Internet Survey

The Obama administration’s stimulus package includes $7.2 billion to extend broadband Internet access to parts of the country where it’s not widely available – this includes the Big Island of Hawaii. The government has given out just a fraction of that money so far and we all know that our island needs these resources to implement high speed internet access.

Please help us to identify underserved and no services areas by filling out the survey below.
