Major City Tech Leaders Fight for Net Neutrality, Other Issues in Washington, D.C.


Coverage Type: reporting
Location:
Washington, DC, United States

Four of the country’s most prominent city tech leaders visited Washington, D.C., to discuss concern over the federal government’s handling of a trio of issues: Internet privacy, local authority of public assets, and, most notably, a potential rollback of network neutrality, which the group uniformly opposes. The trip took place Sept. 8, and included a coalition made up of New York City CTO Miguel Gamiño, San Francisco CIO Linda Gerull, Seattle CTO Michael Mattmiller, and Austin CIO Stephen Elkins. In Washington, D.C., they met with congressional leadership to express concern over the three issues on behalf of themselves and the communities they represent.

  • "In Washington, D.C., the[ preceding] met with ??? congressional leadership ??? to express concern over the three issues [(1. Internet privacy, 2. local authority [over] public assets, and [..]3. network neutrality)] on behalf of themselves and the communities they represent."

Who was the congressional leadership allegedly met and what response was given on these three issues.
This reporting is an interesting first step needed to cover this story but is, otherwise, wholly useless fluff.
Fighting usually means there was resistance?
