Statement Of ACA President and CEO Matthew M. Polka On The Passing Of Cable Pioneer Bill Bresnan

PITTSBURGH, November 30, 2009 -- "All of us at the American Cable Association are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Bill Bresnan, whose groundbreaking career as a cable industry pioneer will be long remembered by those who counted on Bill for guidance and inspiration.  Bill was an extraordinary man who, as a small cable operator himself, recognized the contributions of independent operators to the ongoing growth of the industry. We appreciated the time and the opportunity all of us at ACA had to work with Bill and his team on issues of importance to all independent operators. Bill's leadership greatly enriched those of us who were fortunate enough to know him and learn from his example. Our deepest sympathies go out to Bill's wife, children, grandchildren, family and his co-workers on the loss of this truly decent and courageous man."
