Wall Street Journal Special Report - featuring ConnectKentucky

The Wall Street Journal today issued a special report on locally driven economic development in “Success Stories: A look at seven places that took different approaches to economic development—and came out ahead.”  The seven include six cities (Kalamazoo; El Paso; Kobe, Japan; Wismar, Germany; Omaha; and Colorado Springs) and one state— rural Kentucky via the ConnectKentucky program. I encourage you to read the seven stories, but pay close attention to what can happen in rural areas with a comprehensive program that considers broadband a vital component of economic development, even in rural areas.
