Tuesday's election has resulted in some monumental changes in governments from city halls to Congress. Pundits are again predicting the death of national cable competition legislation but we are not so quick to believe that a change in Congressional leadership will mean a less vigorous approach to key consumer issues. Cable choice falls in that category. Our previous discussions with incoming Speaker Pelosi's office confirm this. We at C4CC will be taking stock of the new landscape but still hope for progress in the nation's capital. In the meantime, we're heartened by discussion in Michigan where the state senate leader lists cable competition as a priority. And we point out the re-election of Governor Schwarzenegger. Could his support for cable competition have contributed to Californians returning him to office?
Consumers continue to want better prices and better service from their cable providers, and they continue to need the innovations and service expansion broadband deployment will bring. So we'll continue to work for those things. This is a time of significant change. With that change comes opportunity to again advocate the consumer agenda for cable reform. We at C4CC will be leading the way, and we are grateful to have you as a partner
