Mignon Clyburn sworn in to fill fifth and final vacancy among FCC Commissioners

(August 5, 2009) Mignon Clyburn has been sworn in as the newest Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission. She was administered the oath of office by Senior District Judge Matthew J. Perry Jr. in her home state of South Carolina. Her appointment, along with the recent swearing in of Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker, gives the FCC its full complement of five Commissioners.

"I am deeply honored that President Obama and the United States Senate have entrusted me with the privilege of serving as a Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission," Clyburn said. "I look forward to working with the Administration, Congress, Chairman Genachowski, my fellow Commissioners and the incredibly talented FCC staff, to ensure that all Americans enjoy the tremendous benefits offered by modern communications. This is an exciting and challenging time in our nation's history. I am eager to hear from and work with all stakeholders to carry out, along with my colleagues, communications policies that protect consumers and encourage robust competition and innovation."

Clyburn is a past chair of the Southeastern Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, and currently chairs the Washington Action Committee of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners. Before being elected to the Public Service Commission in 1998, she was Publisher/GM of the weekly Coastal Times newspaper in Charleston, SC.

Mignon Clyburn is the daughter of U.S. House of Representatives Majority Whip, Jim Clyburn, of South Carolina.

FCC Chairman Julius Genechoski welcomed Clyburn to the Commission by saying, "Mignon is a dedicated public servant with years of state-level and private-sector experience and it's an honor to serve alongside such a talented colleague. At this critical moment in history, I look forward to collaborating with my fellow Commissioners on ways that the agency can improve the lives of all Americans through communications."
