After serving our country as United States Marines they both joined a large firm in the cell tower space. In 2007, they left the comfort of a big company to start their own.

Like many small businesses, they want to hire and employ our veterans. We should make it easier for them to get it done. So we'll be proposing a $4,000 tax credit for businesses hiring and retaining an unemployed veteran.
We started with 53 towns lacking high speed internet access. And while there's still more work to be done, in just six months we've moved a dozen towns forward.
