Last Thursday the RSFA Board approved the RSF Connect fiber project -- subject to a community vote. Let me write that again, subject to a community vote. The "community" includes YOU. The project's survival is not a given. Indeed, those who are not in favor of it will likely be the first ones to submit their ballots. The biggest danger is assuming the project doesn't need your vote of support, and it unravels into a "Dewey Defeats Truman" shocker.
As RSFA Tech Committee member and RSF Post columnist, Phil Trubey, discusses in his latest article, "Last Piece of the Puzzle," ballots (along with a separate survey card, ISP name/address request, and a four-page voters guide) have been mailed out, so please be on the look-out for yours. The RSFA Town Hall meeting on the project is tomorrow, Sept. 14, at 5pm at the RSF Golf Club. There will be free vino and nibbles and, most importantly, an informative discussion of the fiber project before the election results are tabulated on October 5. As Phil's article concludes, we are blessed with world-class experts in technology, finance, and leadership to design, budget, manage and execute this state-of-the-art project. Rancho Santa Fe deserves no less. Let's make it happen. Vote!
