Maren Machles is coming from an investigative journalism background and has spent her career digging into the finances and backgrounds of powerful political figures as well as the systemic oppression of a variety of marginalized communities. The combination of Machles’ studies in economics as an undergrad at Ohio University, and her time reporting in under-resourced communities, has fueled her understanding that fast, affordable broadband access is an absolute necessity for the equity of all Americans.
