Mitchell meets President Obama

Christopher Mitchell (MPP ‘07) has been working at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance since he graduated from the Humphrey School. His focus has been on community owned internet networks built by local governments.

On January 16 in Cedar Falls, Iowa, President Obama gave a speech about how important community owned networks are. Christopher was invited to attend and had a front row seat for the speech. Afterwards, he was able to shake the President’s hand.

The next day, Christopher was on the Daily Circuit on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) talking about these networking issues.
