American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka Issues Statement On Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.)

PITTSBURGH, November 3, 2010 - "Rep. Rick Boucher was at the center of American telecommunications policy for nearly three decades, a profoundly transformative period covering the break up of AT&T and the explosive arrival of the global Internet. Rep. Boucher understood that good policy is made when concept confronts opportunity, and he went about the business of lawmaking with erudition, calm civility and intellectual rigor in an effort to locate the most desirable outcome for the nation and his rural Virginia district. His door always remained open to ACA members for an exchange of ideas and a search for common ground to improve conditions in unserved and underserved communities. ACA salutes Rep. Boucher on his long and distinguished career on Capitol Hill and looks forward to working with him again to continue to build a better communications future for hometown America."
