How do you give away Internet freedom? President Obama is attempting to do it in one swift move.

He recently announced that he plans to move forward with relinquishing the U.S. government’s oversight over vital pieces of the Internet’s core infrastructure to the “global stakeholder community.” What is being referred to as the IANA transfer will surrender the domain name system (DNS) and root zone files to the organization ICANN and with it, America’s special role in promoting and protecting the greatest tool for individual freedom in human history would come to an end.

There’s only one problem with this plan – he can’t do it without Congressional consent. It says so in the IANA/Dept. of Commerce contracts! And we have proof>>>

These important documents that have allowed the Internet to function properly have been moderated, updated, and protected by U.S. supervision, under contract.They are government property, owned by every American citizen. The cannot be given away at the whim of the president.

But even though Obama has no authority to hand over the Internet, he’s going to try anyway. We need to do everything we can to stop him.

Keeping these files with the United States is vital to ensuring the Internet can be freely accessed by the world. Help us save the web.

A TALE OF TWO CITIES

Dear Redding Resident,

Charles Dicken’s began a Tale of Two Cities with the line “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” – And I think that is apropos for our tale of two cities here in Redding. On one side, we have a Redding that responded to the rush of development by establishing a planning commission, protecting our water resources and acquiring open space. Public and private efforts led the preservation of more than 1/3 of Redding as “forever green”, maintaining a country atmosphere in the midst of increasingly urban Fairfield Country.  As First Selectman, I would ensure this vision is retained and strengthened.  Our rural beauty is at the heart of what attracted many of us to Redding and is at the core of what we offer as a town.

Georgetown is another part of the Redding story.  The award winning plan for creating a village center out of the old wire mill has stalled.  In July, after failing to negotiate a path forward with owners and creditors, the town filed for foreclosure.  To bring this project to fruition – one that includes affordable housing, office and retail space, as well as facilities for arts, recreation, and open space – strong leadership and negotiation skills are needed.  I have saved companies more than $1-billion through contract negotiations and managed a country-wide transition for NATO in Afghanistan.  With degrees and experience in engineering, finance, and the law, I can turn this chapter of the Georgetown story into the “best of times”. And along the way, I would develop a plan to help revitalize our town’s existing commercial spaces in West Redding and Main Street in Georgetown, both of which currently have too many empty storefronts.

If you agree, won’t you help us spread the word by donating to Witt for Redding with a click of the convenient button below. Whether you can give $10 or the maximum allowable $1,000, you’ll be playing an important role in helping us bring a new vision of leadership for a more livable, economically viable Redding.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Eric Witt
