internet neutrality

Dear Mr. President:
You have made a promise to protect the neutrality of our internet to insure all users have equal rights and equal access to information. Please uphold your promise by instructing your appointee, Mr. Wheeler, to rule in favor of internet neutrality. I am watching this issue and your administration's actions very closely since I felt the appointment of a corporate insider, Mr. Wheeler, is very suspect for allowing big money to again usurp the rights of individual citizens. Please honor your promise. Thank you, Merle Norman and Curtis Beech, El Sobrante, CA
