Name: Antonio “Tony” Williams
Title/Occupation: Director of Government Affairs
What Makes The Person A Game Changer: Antonio “Tony” Williams currently works with Comcast as their Director of Government Affairs. In 2006, he ran for City Council office in Washington, D.C., Ward 6. He was one of the most visible black Republicans running for local office. He decided to run because he was distressed by people who work on the Hill but didn’t take part in their community. Tony is the son of Juan Williams who is one of America’s leading political writers and thinkers. He is an advocate for improving under-performing school systems. Tony serves on the board of Children’s Literacy Initiative, Philadelphia Young Playwrights, and is the founder of IMPACT Philadelphia.
Tony is also proud of the work he has been doing to bring affordable broadband to low-income students and their families: http://www.internetessentials.com
