Those of you that have been following the news lately have heard about President-elect Barack Obama’s Cabinet nominations. Did you know, though, that during his term President-elect Obama will appoint people to all five FCC commissionerships? Three of those appointments will come in his first year in office, as Commissioner Robert McDowell’s term ends in June 2009 and Commissioners Michael Copps’s and Jonathon Adelstein’s terms end in December 2009.
The website freepress.net has composed a poll that allows you, the American public, to tell President-elect Obama what issues you want to see the FCC tackle during his presidency. The poll (below) allows you to select up to three qualifications you want to see in the commissioners he selects to head the Federal Communications Commission.
Special thanks to the Acadiana Open Channel in Lafayette, Louisiana, for the hat tip on this.
