Our 2021 Spotlight kicks off with Gold Level Member AT&T. They became a Metro West COG business partner early in 2012 and our main contact is Jaclyn (Jaci) Kator, Director of External Affairs. Jaci is AT&T’s area brand ambassador working with municipal, county, state officials and the nonprofit community on government and community relations initiatives. An additional contact at AT&T is John Quinn, Director of External & Legislative Affairs AT&T Illinois.
AT&T was contracted by the First Responder Network Authority to develop FirstNet, the nationwide wireless communications ecosystem designed for first responders. This includes public works personnel who are specifically authorized by local, county, state, federal, territory or Tribal laws who may periodically support first responders.
