The following may be attributed to an AT&T spokesperson:
“I want to congratulate Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai for their White House nominations to become FCC Commissioners. We have had the pleasure of working with both nominees in the past and they possess the experience, expertise and enthusiasm for public service that will serve them well as they navigate today’s communications policy challenges. We look forward to working with them at the agency once they are confirmed by the Senate.
“Both nominees will have large shoes to fill at the FCC. The announcement last night reminds us all that Commissioner Copps’ long, distinguished tenure at the FCC is coming to an end. We have climbed many hills with Commissioner Copps as he likes to say. Personally and professionally, I always enjoyed the candid dialog and friendship with the Commissioner and the great people with whom he surrounded himself.”
