Departure of Commissioner Mignon Clyburn a Loss for the FCC and the Public Interest

Statement of Michael Copps, former FCC Commissioner & Common Cause Special Advisor

Commissioner Clyburn’s announcement is sad news for us all. She gave eloquent and effective voice to many millions who have for so long lacked a voice at the FCC, and her work to make communications policy work for everyone makes her a champion to them and to me. She’s been a can-do and trailblazing commissioner, and I know she will continue to work valiantly for the common good wherever she goes. Thank you, Mignon. You’re a hero to me.
