Ditto Congratulates Clyburn Upon Departure from FCC

 

Washington, April 17, 2018 Utilities Technology Council President and CEO Joy Ditto issue the following statement after Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Mignon Clyburn announced her intention to step down from the Commission:

“On behalf of the Utilities Technology Council, I commend Commissioner Mignon Clyburn for her successful and path-breaking tenure at the Federal Communications Commission. She has been a strong proponent of the need for energy and water providers to have access to interference-free spectrum. She understands the interdependencies between the energy and telecommunications industries, particularly as rural utilities provide critical, economy boosting broadband services to areas unserved and underserved by traditional telecommunications companies. I congratulate her for a race well run and wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

–Joy Ditto, UTC President and CEO
