   Kerry Donovan D-5 represents a portion of the Western Slope, including Aspen and Basalt in the Colorado Statehouse.

Recently, two separate bills she introduced regarding broadband access were defeated on party lines. Aspen Public Radio’s Alycin Bektesh spoke with the senator about the politics at work behind her measures. One would make it easier for local governments to provide broadband, and the other proposed re-appropriate telecommunication funds from phone service to Internwt access.
