Mignon Clyburn has been approved by the U. S. Senate to serve on the Federal Communications Commission. She is the daughter of Congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina and most recently served on the S.C. Public Service Commission.
She was nominated to the post by President Barack Obama and had the support of the state’s senior Republican Senator Lindsay Graham. He issued this statement late Friday:
“She is an outstanding choice for the FCC. Mignon has the intellect and experience to excel in this key position. Her service on the South Carolina Public Service Commission will serve her well in her new position on the federal level. I applaud President Obama for making an excellent selection, and I congratulate Mignon on her confirmation to the Commission.”
