If confirmed by the Senate, it would be a privilege to continue working to ensure that the American public has access to the best possible communications opportunities in the world."
Fellow Democratic Commissioner MICHAEL COPPS said, "I congratulate my good friend and colleague, JONATHAN ADELSTEIN, on the news that the President intends to renominate him to the Commission. JONATHAN and I have traveled the country together to learn directly from the American people about how the FCC’s communications policies are serving them. I know him to be a smart, dedicated and courageous advocate for bringing communications technologies to all Americans. I look forward to continuing to work with JONATHAN on the many important issues before the Commission in the coming months and years."
And Republican Commissioner ROBERT MCDOWELL added, "I am delighted that President BUSH has announced his intention to renominate my friend and colleague, JONATHAN ADELSTEIN, to another term on the FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION.
