STATEMENT BY FCC COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN ON THE DEPARTURE
OF COMMISSIONER ROBERT McDOWELL
It is with profound sadness that I find myself coming to terms with the pending departure
of my dear friend, Rob McDowell. Working with him has been an incredible learning
experience, an increasingly rare exercise in effective collaboration, and a wonderful opportunity
to spend time with a true southern gentleman. His background and ideals have been invaluable
to the Commission, and his keen insights and deep intellect have helped me grow as a regulator.
He is both a trusted ally and at times a worthy adversary, but to sum it all, Commissioner
McDowell stands for America, her citizens, her entrepreneurs and her innovators. I will greatly
miss his company, I wish him all the best, and thank him for being such a wonderful colleague
and friend to me, the FCC, and our country.
