Joint Center President Talks to Politico About Biden Tapping Geoffrey Starks for FCC Chair

Joint Center President Spencer Overton was quoted in Politico PRO‘s article on President-elect Joe Biden tapping Geoffrey Starks to chair the Federal Communications Commission.

“Commissioner Starks is the strongest candidate on issues related to inclusion, equality, and communities of color,” said Spencer in the article. “We know him; he has been with us,” he later added. “He has remained engaged with adversely affected communities.”

In 2018, the Joint Center urged the U.S. Senate to swiftly confirm Starks as the next FCC Commissioner, and later commanded the U.S. Senate for confirming his nomination.
