Happy Birthday to my dear friend and fellow MMTC Board member, Everett Parker, born today, January, 17, 2012. Not many of us will ever reach our 99th birthday. Even fewer will have the generational impact upon vital and complex communications policy discussions that Everett has had – and continues to have. But most importantly, Everett also translated thoughts into action: strategically, energetically, and effectively. Thank you for your years of public service – most often for the poor, the voiceless, and the forgotten.
Happy Birthday, Everett, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to know and work with you at the FCC and beyond!
