Statement of Commissioner Ajit Pai on the Announced Departure of Chairman Tom Wheeler
WASHINGTON, December 15, 2016.—This morning, Chairman Wheeler announced that he would depart the Federal Communications Commission on January 20, 2017, after leading the agency for more than three years. Like his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes, Chairman Wheeler brought passion and tenacity to the playing field each and every day. Despite our differences in many areas of communications policy, I commend him for his years of public service. It has been a privilege to serve alongside him, and I wish him well in his future endeavors.
