Trump's Anti-Net Neutrality Swamp Dwellers Have to Go
So much for "draining the swamp" of corporate lobbyists and insiders.
Trump has tapped Jeffrey Eisenach, Mark Jamison and Roslyn Layton to head up his tech transition team. And it's a clear signal that the president-elect is clogging the drain.
Eisenach works for Verizon and doesn't think broadband monopolies are real.1 Jamison, a former Sprint lobbyist, believes the FCC should be dismantled. Layton opposes the communication rights of real people in favor of the gatekeeper agenda of companies like AT&T and Comcast.2
All three are outspoken opponents of Net Neutrality. And they're determined to undermine the open internet protections that you and millions of others fought so hard to put in place.
Speak out now: This team of industry loyalists and Net Neutrality haters should be nowhere near the FCC.
