Business Council appoints new broadband board members

The Wyoming Business Council has appointed Tom Lacock and Brian Worthen to replace outgoing members Doug Wilson and Ashley Harpstreith on its Broadband Advisory Council. 

 Lacock has worked in government relations with the AARP Wyoming and Wyoming Medical Society, as well as in state government with both the Wyoming Business Council and the Wyoming Department of Education.  

 
Worthen graduated from the University of Wyoming with a bachelor's degree in Small Business Management with an emphasis on Finance. He joined Visionary 
Communications in 2001, working to develop the company’s broadband portfolio in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. Visionary was the first provider to develop broadband in Buffalo, Cody, Gillette, Newcastle, Ranchester, Rawlins, Sundance and Wright. 

The Broadband Advisory Council comprises 11 members from different backgrounds and different areas of the state. The 2018 Legislature created the Council and appropriated $10 million to establish a Broadband Infrastructure Grant Fund.
