Statement by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray on Renomination

Thank you, Mr. President, for the confidence you have placed in me and our team at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We understand that our mission is to stand on the side of consumers – our mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters – and see that they’re treated fairly. For more than a year, we have been focused on making consumer finance markets work better for the American people. We approach this work with open minds, open ears, and great determination. We all thank you and the Congress for the opportunity and the honor to serve our country in this important way. Thank you.
