Net Neutrality - Broadband for All


 Top/Down:  Commissioner Ajit Pai - President, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel,
Left/Right:  Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, Commissioner Michael O'Reilly, Commissioner Brendan Carr
November 12, 2017
MILWAUKEE || Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC support for Net Neutrality goes back to early 2000.  Mary Glass, Chair/CEO/CVO, an IT activist for urban Milwaukee, followed closely the works of the FCC/Federal Communication Commission through the works of Free Press - specifically the leadership of Milwaukeean Michael Copps.  Copps was with the FCC for 10 years (2001-2011).  He is now working with Common Cause in Washington, DC.

*************************************
Full-Staff
The FCC Commission is back to full-body now that nominees Jessica Rosenworcel (Democrat) and Brenden Carr (Republican) were confirmed by a voice vote of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee a voice vote of confirmation.  Ajit Pai, Chairman (Republican) was appointed in January 2017, by Donald Trump was reconfirmed on October 2, 2017, by the Senate.
==============

SMART Conversations Infrastructure centers around the engagement of the FCC/Federal Communication Commission and the Lifeline support for Broadband services to the UNDERSERVED.  Given the stark comments by Ajit Pai, Chairman of the FCC, we must make sure that our policy arm is firmer and in focused as a laser to the office of the FULL Commission for REJECTION of changes to NET NEUTRALITY. 

FACES OF NET NEUTRALITY
Below are reasons for great concern and "action-oriented" response by Milwaukeeans.

==============
 "I am deeply grateful to the US Senate for confirming my nomination to serve a second term at the FCC and to President Trump for submitting that nomination to the Senate," Pai said after today's vote. "Since January, the commission has focused on bridging the digital divide, promoting innovation, protecting consumers and public safety, and making the FCC more open and transparent. With today's vote, I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues to advance these critical priorities in the time to come.

Pai “chooses corporate interests over consumers”

Nelson blasted Pai for making it harder for low-income Americans to buy subsidized broadband with changes to the Lifeline program; for limiting the amount of information broadband subscribers receive about fees and data caps; for supporting the rollback of consumer broadband privacy protections, and for several other policies.
Pai has "acted as if the way to improve broadband in rural America is to lower standards and saddle our most remote communities with slower speed and worse service," Nelson said. With his proposal to eliminate net neutrality rules, Pai wants to revoke "essential consumer protections on the Internet," he said.
"At every turn, Chairman Pai chooses corporate interests over consumers," Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said, according to Broadcasting & Cable. Under Pai, the FCC stands for "Forgetting Consumers and Competition," Markey said.
Pai "has demonstrated a disdain to these important public interest principles that he's supposed to be upholding," Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) said.
Cantwell and others made Pai's stance against net neutrality rules a key part of their arguments. The rules prevent ISPs from blocking or throttling lawful Internet content and prohibit providers from charging websites or other online services for "prioritization."
Pai is "planning to blow up the level playing field that is so crucial to innovation and free speech online and that allows the startup trying to get out of the garage to become the next YouTube, Google, or eBay," Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said.

November 7 - Common Council is expected to OVERRIDE Veto of Mayor


November 5, 2017


November 5, 2017

Hello Fellow Milwaukeeans!

Do Not Forget to call your ALDERPERSON (414.286-221) and remind him or her to VOTE on November 7, 2017, to OVERRIDE the mayor's VETO.  To remind them that they need to be in a SOLIDARITY MODE.

It is time for the Common Council to weigh in on the aloofness and disregard that is present when the mayor and chief are "pals".  

We must also LOOK AT how dysfunctional and arrogant the Police and Fire Commission has been over the past 3 years - not to mention the climate seen when Norquist was mayor,  Yes. I am aware that the NEW group was not present with Norquist, however, my point is, this is what happens when the mayor is the 100% decision-maker - and is palsy-walsy with the Chief of Police. Barrett and Norquist are two examples.

Veto Override expected of Common Council - Wishing Does Not Make it So - VOTE OVERRIDE

Click photo to Enlarge

November 1, 2017
CITY-WIDE MILWAUKEE | Hear YeHear Ye! to the 15 members presently holding the seats named City of Milwaukee Common Council.  We, the Public, want to always have TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY from those who take an Oath of Office to provide fiduciary leadership.  

                                NOW IS THE TIME.

=====================

Members of the Common Council took a vote recently, 8-6, for to weigh in on the hiring and firing of the "chief" for the Fire and Police Department.


Alderman Nic Kovac, Alderman Bob Bauman, Alderman Khalif Rainey, Alderwoman Chantia Lewis, Alderman Mark Borkowski, Alderman Jose Perez and Alderman Russell Stamper voted yes.
Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, Alderman Cavalier Johnson, Alderman Jim Bohl, Alderwoman Milele Coggs, Alderman Mark Murphy and Alderman Terry Witkowski voted no.
Alderman Bob Donovan was excused.
QUESTION
What happened Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, Alderman Jim Bohl, Alderman Robert Donovan, Alderman Cavalier Johnson, Alderman Michael Murphy , Alderman Terry Witkowski and Alderwoman Milele Coggs?  

It would appear that you would have been for this change in legislation, given recent hubbubs with the police chief, lack of reports, high costs, questionable enforcement, and an obvious disregard for your charter position for city government.  Also, given the closeness of the VOTE, 8-6, may have given Tom Barrett, mayor, the "go ahead".  

Barrett immediately vetoed the Resolution claiming "politicizing" the reason?  Is that your CON too?  Politicizing?  If so, that is not a credible argument.

Law Enforcement of Milwaukee is well-known and the largest population, African American and other People of Color do not like the way they are treated and the manner in which safety prevention and safety intervention are pursued in their neighborhoods.

It is also known that Barrett and Flynn have somewhat commandeered what happens with the operation of the Police Department.  Then there is the unfavorable reputation of the Fire and Police Board.

Time to Correct
You have an opportunity to correct your lack of "decisive" Stewardship, to stand tall on the People's behalf on November 7, 2017.  
You are expected to VOTE to Override the VETO.

The facts have been revealed to you that there is a "cozy relationship" between the mayor and the chief of police.  

It has been reported that the chief of police has established a wall of arrogance.  According to Alderman Tony Zielinski, District 14, the police chief has refused to respond to the Common Council inquiries.  That is out-of-order and goes against our checks-and-balances for local government public trust.

When Milwaukeeans and members of the Common Council call the office of Fire Chief or Police Chief, we expect a professional, respectful, appropriate and timely response - not dismissiveness.  The cozy relationship between the mayor's office and the chief sends the wrong message and have helped removed TRUST.

Judging from what has been the "disconnect" of the Common Council and Chief of Police Fynn, as well as the disconnect of the Fire/Police Commission, it is time for the Common Council to have a say-so of the hiring and firing of the two top Safety Responders.  

Yes.  It is to be "publicized" by the facts.  

Given the focus on police behavior, cost of personnel, cost of legal suits, standards of service, citizen trust and negative image of the police in Milwaukee, the transparency and accountability cannot be left to the final decision of the mayor or those he appoints. 

What say you on November 7, 2017?
