Can SVEC bring us reliable broadband service?


Dear editor,

Electric cooperatives around Virginia are finding ways to successfully deliver high quality broadband service to hard-to-reach rural homes and businesses such as many of those here in Page County. Shaun Mooney, who is running for the Board of Directors of the Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative in its upcoming election, thinks SVEC can do the same for us and I wholeheartedly support his efforts. 

This past year has been a struggle for everyone across the country but even harder for those of us in rural areas with weak and unreliable access to the internet. Remote learning, working from home and tele-health appointments are not possible without good internet service. 

Ballots for the SVEC Board of Directors election will arrive in early June. Please vote for Shaun Mooney and for reliable broadband service so that our kids, our workers and our businesses will not be left behind again.
