STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI
ON THE DESIGNATION OF MIGNON CLYBURN
AS THE ACTING CHAIRWOMAN OF THE FCC
Congratulations to my friend and colleague, Mignon Clyburn, on her designation this morning as
Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission. This is a historic day—as the 30th chair, she is
the first woman to lead our 79-year-old agency. I know that her steadfast leadership and commitment to
the public interest will serve the Commission well. I look forward to continuing to work with her in the
months ahead on policies that will promote innovation and competition and benefit American consumers.
