At the FCC’s meeting last week, Commissioner Tate announced her departure from the FCC. On behalf of WCAI, I thank her for her exemplary public service. I will certainly miss her.
Commissioner Tate fulfilled her office with uncommon grace. She was always quick to thank Commission staff for their tireless efforts, to recognize the contributions of her colleagues, and try to find consensus on difficult issues. She also was an indefatigable advocate for children and families, persons with disabilities, and a lighter regulatory approach. It was truly an honor to work with her at the Commission, and I wish her all the best in her new endeavors.
