Mayor Swearengin Issues Statement on Google Fiber

Mayor Ashley Swearengin today issued the following statement about Google’s selection of Kansas City, Kansas, as the location for its ultra high-speed fiber Internet project.

“Google’s decision is very disappointing for us, but I’m proud of the way Fresnans rallied around the City’s application and supported our effort. We extend sincere congratulations to Kansas City and look forward to learning from their experience in deploying a Google fiber network. I still believe Fresno is a great market for Google Fiber and will work to make sure Google officials know Fresno wants to be considered in their next phase of deployment.”
