Welcome

Rally in Support of Net Neutrality

Phillip Price for Congress Campaign-  Price 4 WNC is hosting a Rally in Support of Net Neutrality Rules on December 7th at 12:30 at Vance Monument.  Please bring a sign and come out in support of Net Neutrality Rules.

Net neutrality is the basic principle that has made the Internet into what it is today. It prevents big Internet Service Providers (like Verizon) from charging extra fees, engaging in censorship, or controlling what we see and do on the web by throttling websites, apps, and online services. Support Net Neutrality Rules!

Chairman of the FCC Ajit Pai, with the backing of congressional Republicans including Mark Meadows, is planning on destroying that forum of freedom with a mid-December vote to undo the Obama administration’s Net Neutrality rules. Phillip Price is in support of Net Neutrality rules and will host a Net Neutrality Rally at the Vance Memorial in downtown Asheville on December 7th at 12:30 pm. We are inviting anyone of any political affiliation to rally with us in support of Net Neutrality Rules. Anyone who supports an open internet should join us especially small business owners, students and political candidates. A free and fair internet must be protected from corporate encroachment. Bring a sign and show up on your lunch break! We will start to arrive by noon. Official start at 12:30 – please join us!

These are the five people deciding the future of the internet.
The two women have come out as No votes. We need only to convince ONE of the other members to flip to a No vote to save Net Neutrality.

Blow up their inboxes!

Ajit Pai – Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov
Mignon Clyburn – Mignon.Clyburn@fcc.gov (confirmed ‘no’ vote)
Michael O’Rielly – Mike.ORielly@fcc.gov
Brendan Carr – Brendan.Carr@fcc.gov
Jessica Rosenworcel – Jessica.Rosenworcel@fcc.gov (confirmed ‘no’ vote)

Contact them directly and contact your representative to ensure they know how you stand on this issue.  THANK YOU.

Mountain Projects, Inc. has announced that effective Sept. 18, the Health Care Navigator program is again available to consumers.
