PRESS STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER JAMES H. QUELLO IN RE PRESIDENT CLINTON'S NAMING WILLIAM E. KENNARD FOR FCC CHAIRMAN
I'm pleased with President Clinton's timely designation of William E. Kennard for FCC
The President made a painstaking decision in selecting Bill Kennard over other eminently well-qualified candidates like Ralph Everett and Kathy Wallman.
They, like Bill, possess the communications expertise, independent judicial temperament and sterling leadership qualities to be excellent FCC Chairmen.
Bill is highly regarded by the legal profession, industry executives and consumer groups.
His intelligence and familiarity with ongoing Commission issues and current FCC personnel will help assure a smooth transition for the newly-appointed Commission.
He has my best wishes for continued achievement in the exciting years ahead.
