American Cable Association Statement On The Passing Of Former FCC Commissioner James H. Quello


PITTSBURGH, January 25, 2010 — American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement on the passing of former FCC commissioner James H. Quello:


"All of us at the American Cable Association were deeply saddened to learn that former FCC Commissioner James H. Quello died on Sunday. On a personal note, I'll always remember that Jim Quello recognized that small cable operators had unique concerns, and I'll always appreciate his sincere attempts to protect small operators from the heavy hand of big government. Much to his credit, Jim Quello understood that good public policy is achieved by consensus, a lesson that all public servants would be wise to follow. A friendly man and a great storyteller, Jim Quello was a gifted public official who built a lasting legacy at the FCC by performing his duties with grace and intelligence, wit and wisdom."
