FCC Commissioner Gloria Tristani is naming a specific departure date for her FCC post. Long-said to be leaving the post sometime this year, she says she will leave the FCC on Sept. 7.
“It has been a great honor to serve as a member of the FCC during this period. I am proud to have advocated for the E-rate and better access to telecommunications for all Americans. After nearly four years, however, I believe it is time for me to move on. I plan to return home to New Mexico in the near future,” Tristani said.
Democrat Tristani was appointed by President Clinton and took office on Nov. 3, 1997. Previously, she had been elected to the New Mexico State Corporation Commission in 1994 and served as SCC Chairman in 1996.
