Sarbanes Statement on President's Nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin as Deputy Treasury Secretary

WASHINGTONU.S. Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today released the following statement on President Obama’s nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin to serve as Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of the Treasury:

“I applaud the President’s nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin – a dedicated public servant with a proven track record of success on the state and federal levels of government. During her tenure as Maryland’s Commissioner of Financial Regulation, Ms. Raskin oversaw the regulation of financial institutions operating in the state and effectively guided the division’s response to the financial crisis. Under her supervision, the Commissioner’s Office made incredible strides in protecting struggling Marylanders from foreclosure and predatory lenders. This experience, coupled with her work as a Congressional staffer and, now, as a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, has prepared her well to serve as Deputy Secretary at the Treasury Department and I know she will dedicate all her energies to continuing our country’s economic recovery.”
