Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey supports the creation of an independent Community Media Center to administer PEG channels for Marin in this letter dated September 20, 2005 that she wrote to the Marin Telecommunications Agency (MTA).
Representative Woolsey wrote in part:
"I urge you to consider establishing a community-based non-profit organization to administer PEG (Public, Education and Government) channels, a service required by the federal government in order to provide the community with local outlets and access. Such an agency, governed by a locally elected board, would be uniquely qualified to ensure that programming addressed the many different constituencies of Marin county.
Many of these constituencies worked successfully with the MTA, Comcast, and elected officials to resolve issues concerning FM radio service, and I am confident that the same spirit of cooperation can be brought forward to develop the best system for administration of PEG channels."
THANKS Congresswoman Woolsey for your support!
