"A new nonprofit launched last month called San Antonio Digital Connects has developed a road map aimed at closing this digital divide. Now it’s seeking local, state, and federal funding to fulfill its ambitious goals.

On Monday, the organization launched its advocacy effort and announced that former USAA and Rackspace executive Marina Alderete Gavito will serve as its founding executive director. Gavito will lead the charge for the public-private-community collaboration."
