Chellie Pingree on Net Neutrality

Well, it's good to see Chellie Pingree (the Democratic candidate for the Congressional District 1 race) posting a clear and articulate defense of net neutrality on the Turn Maine Blue political blog. What's more, it's great to see her speaking to these issues within the local political blogosphere. A short, accessible blog post (with links to references when appropriate) outlining why or why you do not support a policy or piece of legislation is a more accountable way of communicating with voters than a ten second sound clip on the television news. Also, if you've never heard of net neutrality, and most voters probably haven't, her post is a pretty good introduction of the fundamentals from a progressive perspective.
