Dear ICANN; Asa business owner, I use the internet as an integral resource for both communication and revenue. I would very much welcome a way for me to distinguish my company on a local and community level and new TLDs would enable m to do that by allowing me to identify my company as local - thereby separating me from millions of competitors. I feel very strongly that regional top-level domain names could drastically improve my business and I want you to follow through with the charter to open the internet to new TLDs as soon as possible. At the very, there is nothing gained by continuously stalling the process through drafts. Sincerely, Carter Livingston The Carter Co.
