Pacific PUD is build out right now in Bay Center. They claim they are
just extending their fiber. There are two other areas in this county
I have targeted, and they have grants are ready to do the work. I already
said I will go to Olympia with you. I did it before. I'll do it again. I'm just
no good in writing my script of what to day other than tell the lawmakers
if they allow this it will put me out of business in this county.

So yeah, I'm in. You know that.

Subject: [Washington] OK so you don't care then?


Months ago I sent out a bill to watch, one that brought Net Neutrality to 
Washington State in what, if you read the bill, is nothing more than massive 
regulations for our industry and the state picking winners and losers over an 
Interstate product that they have no authority over.  I got responses from two 
WISP's yet there are over 100 people on this list, I figured you were going to 
contact your legislators on your own. Apparently you didn't care because it 
passed the house 95-4 so even the Republicans in your districts supported it.

I've already announced I will financially support anyone who opposes my house 
members based on voting for a bill that proves they don't support small 
business, I know they didn't read it or they would've seen the new regulations 
in an unenforceable bill that none of us can afford to challenge now that it's 
a state mandate.  In addition voting for this gives Governor Inslee the chops 
to brag how he passed the toughest Net Neutrality bill in the United States 
when he runs for President.

Basically I'm saying here that I have done my job as state coordinator to 
educate you and prepare you to have stopped this from the very beginning, now 
it's too late.  Apathy is deadly for your business and while we are all very 
busy building our businesses this bill badly hurts us.  If you still care there 
is still a bill out there allowing PUD's and Port districts to do retail 
Internet right over the top of you.

Sorry I'm frustrated that you aren't taking this seriously, look what you ended 
up with.
