Subject: In support of .co-op .coop


As a member of the governing council (Board) of GreenStar Cooperative in Ithaca, NY, and as an Internet user, I firmly support the creation of a new TLD for Cooperatives for the reasons so clearly spelled out in the application by the Cooperative League.  Co-ops serve in many different areas, energy, retail, production, etc., but their common commitment to cooperative ownership provides a shared identity across the wide variety of co-ops nationally and internationally.  Neither the .com nor the .org adequately represents cooperative business organizations.  Indeed, for some, there is real confusion over what TLD extension is appropriate, making it harder to find their co-op on the Internet.  Having a .co-op or .coop TLD will ease such confusion, remove some of the burden from the existing TLD's and will further promote education about the alternative that co-ops offer.

I strongly encourage your favorable consideration of this application.
