Here’s the latest and greatest from the Duluth mayor Don Ness. Once again, WHY SHOULD DULUTH GET THIS STUPENDOUS PRIVILEGE!?!? Next thing you know he’ll be asking his constituents to support taxes and other whims without reason.
The transformation of our economy – a call to action
I need your help! By investing just a few moments of your time, you’ll be part of an incredible transformation of our regional economy.
We’re out to convince Google to build an ultra-high speed fiber network in the Twin Ports. This system will bring fiber-optic connections to every home and business at speeds of one gigabit per second, up to 1000 times faster than existing “high-speed” Internet connections.
This changes everything.
It changes our economy, it changes how we do business, it puts Duluth and Superior at the forefront of the next great economic revolution in America. And yes, you’ll be able to download an entire HD movie in 30 seconds.
Could it really happen? Absolutely. We fit Google’s criteria extremely well and we believe we have the most comprehensive campaign in the nation. Ultimately, our success depends on the participation of folks like you.
Our success depends on YOU taking three simple steps:
1) Go to www.googletwinports.com and join the team.
2) There you can create a free Google account (if you don’t already have one):
and submit a nomination directly to Google:
3) Join our Facebook group, www.googletwinports.com/facebook , and post your confirmation code from step 2 to Facebook.
4) Business can place a GoogleTwinPorts supporter badge on their websites:
Folks are fired up about this – Duluth is on the national map as a forerunner in this contest. Don’t let up! Let’s make this happen – we have just a few weeks until the deadline.
Thanks for your help!
Mayor Don Ness
Ok, I’m off my soapbox…
