REC Networks statement on the confirmation of Geoffrey Starks to the Federal Communications Commission
Congratulations to Geoffrey Starks on what was a long confirmation process. Starks brings recent real-world experience to the Commission from the Enforcement Bureau. Once this shutdown is over, I will be happy to work with Commissioner Starks to further community radio and a citizen's access to spectrum. Taking the position previously held by Mingnon Clyburn, Commissioner Starks has some huge shoes to fill and I hope we can work together to get him up to speed on the issues that are important to REC including LP-250, new entry into NCE broadcasting, alternative spectrum, spectrum and equipment integrity, assuring localism and diversity in free broadcasting, advocacy for the radio listener and the protection of radio services available to individuals such as Amateur Radio.
