Shelley Moore Capito said ( about Shelley Moore Capito ) : “I launched my Capito Connect stories initiative so I can hear directly from West Virginians about the real challenges they are experiencing when it comes to connectivity. This feedback is instrumental in helping us achieve our goal of connecting more homes, businesses, and classrooms across West Virginia. After launching the initiative and reading so many of these stories, I enjoyed hearing firsthand about how educators, healthcare workers, and small business owners are finding ways to succeed as they face challenges like COVID-19 and use the Internet and other resources to succeed. I am confident that together we can finally connect West Virginia,” External link
