Report: Biden to Nominate Anna Gomez as FCC Commissioner

President Joe Biden plans to nominate veteran government attorney Anna Gomez to the vacant FCC commission seat, reports Bloomberg. This would give the agency its first Democratic majority of his term. Earlier this year, his previous nomination Gigi Sohn withdrew her name after more than two years of partisan deadlock. Gomez is a former NTIA deputy assistant secretary (2009-13) who in January became a Senior Advisor for International Information and Communications Policy at the U.S. State Department.

Gomez earlier served for over a decade in various management positions at the FCC, and on the White House staff under President Bill Clinton. After leaving the NTIA, she was a partner at Wiley, a Washington law firm. Gomez is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and earned her law degree from George Washington University in Washington, DC.

Gomez would be the first hispanic female to sit on the FCC since 2001, according to the National Hispanic Media Coalition. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus had previously urged Biden to appoint a Latino to the FCC.
