Congress can apparently countermand the FCC with a CRA (Congressional Review Act) so keep the pressure on Congress if you want net neutrality to survive.

He posted 5 hours ago on FB that he voted to delay the net neutrality vote and remove it from tomorrow's agenda. Not clear if he means remove all together tho

If you're looking to take action on Albio Sires, check out NJ-08 for Progress at https://www.nj08forprogress.org/

We're a group of NJ-08 residents (mostly in Jersey City), who believe that the more people participate in government, the more responsive government is to its people. We're looking to hold Sires accountable, amplify the efforts of local groups and connect people to the issues they care about.

We're hosting a party on December 17 at 3pm at Zeppelin Hall Beer Garden to celebrate surviving 2017 and start strategizing for 2018. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1964852160458668/

We who have Rep. Albio Sires as our congressperson, have a Ghost of a congressperson.

Do you know what his face looks like or what his voice sounds like?

Sires has yet to put his face out to a Town Hall meeting in an open forum answering questions from his constituents for low these many years that he has been in office.

Sires thinks sending out a newsletter with a lot of blah, blah, blahs, is him doing a great job.

Sires is a sad excuse for a congressperson.

The sooner he is gone, gone, gone.... the better.

If you are not aware, Rep. Albio Sires represents most of Jersey City in the 8th Congressional District. If you live in Downtown Jersey City, he is most certainly your Representative.

Here is his FiveThirtyEight Scorecardif you would like to see how he has been voting on different issues. This is part of FiveThirtyEight’s “Tracking Congress In The Age Of Trump” project.

So, after doing a little bit of research, it seems that our Rep. Sires has sided with the Telecom companies in the past regarding Net Neutrality.

When looking further into it, it seems that each election cycle Rep. Sires has had campaign donations varying from $5K to $11K from both AT&T and Verizon, respectively dating back to 2012, when his campaign received a donation of $11K from Verizonmost likely because of his 2010 vote.

Here is the response received via email by one Reddit user /u/TiggyBitties when asked his Net Neutrality stance.

Here is an article from The Hill regarding his 2016 vote on Net Neutrality

Additional article about NJ’s Sires & Adler Net Neutrality vote in 2010

Thoughts? Do any of you plan to contact Rep. Sires in regards to Net Neutrality? Congress could potentially stop or postpone this vote on Dec. 14th if enough pressure is applied, as they have before.

28 Senators have written a letter to postpone the Net Neutrality vote due to fake comments in the public comments section.

How do you feel about Rep. Sires overall work as our Congressman?
