A Champion of a Free and Open Internet
Zoe recognizes that technology and Internet services are thriving components of our economy and culture; she is a longtime champion of a free and open Internet and supports online free expression and universal network access. Zoe is also a leading privacy advocate and has diligently worked to stop the NSA from continuing their mass surveillance of U.S. Citizens and to protect our Fourth Amendment privacy rights.
Among her colleagues in Congress, Zoe is valued and respected for her thoughtful insight and the forward-leaning policies she advances to help spur the development of new technologies and the growth of America’s economy in the Digital Age.
Zoe was instrumental in the selection of San Jose for the first-ever West Coast regional U.S. Patent and Trademark Office – finally giving startups and inventors direct access to the services they need to thrive and innovate. And it is no exaggeration that Zoe was the principal reason we were able to defeat SOPA and PIPA just a few years ago and thus avert a real disaster for Silicon Valley.
Her committee assignments on the House Judiciary Committee, the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, and the House Administration Committee provide strong platforms for issues that are key to Silicon Valley and its livelihood.
