Now an announcement is out on the Trump appointment to the FCC Seat.
On Friday evening, President Trump announced his nomination of Democrat Geoffrey Starks to fill the commissioner’s seat left vacant when Mignon Clyburn quit in April. That term runs through June 30, 2022.
Starks currently is assistant bureau chief of the commission’s Enforcement Bureau. He previously was senior counsel at the Justice Department during the Obama administration.
According to TechCrunch, “It’s unclear as yet what his position is on the various measures currently being addressed by the FCC, from net neutrality to the revamping of media regulations. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly settled on Starks as long as a couple months ago, the interim no doubt being spent on due diligence, cultivating endorsements, and so on.”
