Commissioner Furchtgott-Roth Praises New FCC Nominees

FCC Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth issued the following statement regarding President Bush’s selections for the FCC:

“President Bush has chosen very wisely. To serve on the Federal Communications Commission, he has announced his intention to nominate three very able Americans: Kathleen Abernathy, Michael Copps, and Kevin Martin. I have every confidence that they will be a credit to the Commission and to the country.

“I am particularly pleased with President Bush’s selection of Kevin Martin. Before joining President Bush’s election campaign as Deputy General Counsel, Kevin served with distinction on my staff. His first hand experiences inside the Commission, keen intellect, good humor, and strong commitment to public life will serve him well. Kevin will be an outstanding Commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission.”
