Today, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn announced her resignation after almost a decade of experience serving at the agency. She has staunchly protected consumers, net neutrality, and the economically and socially disenfranchised during her tenure. Public Knowledge thanks Commissioner Clyburn for her efforts to defend the Open Internet, help prison inmates connect with loved ones, and expand affordable broadband to rural America.
The following can be attributed to Public Knowledge President Gene Kimmelman:
“Mignon Clyburn used her passion for justice and compassion for the underserved to demonstrate the best of what an FCC Commissioner can offer the American people. She set the highest standard of public service and hopefully others will follow in her footsteps to further the public interest.”
