Some of the most important developments at today's FCC Open Meeting were not the proceedings addressed but the staffing changes announced. Chairman Kevin Martin unveiled several solid appointments to some of the busiest parts of the agency including: Chief of Staff Dan Gonzalez, Legal Advisor Michelle Carey, Consumer Bureau Chief Monica Desai, Enforcement Bureau Chief Kris Monteith and Wireline Bureau Chief Tom Navin. These are veterans who know their way around the FCC and who understand deeply the complex issues the agency faces, particularly with respect to critical issues such as broadband, voice over IP and universal service. They also are some of my favorite people at the Commission. As a former colleague, I couldn't be happier for them.
