For today’s #SlomskiScoop, we are tackling education and the impact coronavirus is having on our children.

The digital divide between those who have access to broadband and those who do not is a real problem in Erie County. This is made even more apparent with school closings – right here in the 49th district there are too many children who can’t access the web which now means not accessing their education. We have to do better – Education is the foundation of opportunity.

#SlomskiScoop: These are challenging and unprecedented times, and we need to be there for one another whenever we safely can. Solving problems is what I do - and I want you to know our team is here for you. If you or someone you know needs access to resources, has questions, etc - we’ve got you covered. - JS
