Levitin on the Board

posted by Bob Lawless
Congratulations to Credit Slips's Adam Levitin who was just named to the Consumer Advisory Board for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.


Congratulations indeed! I must say, though, that this consumer advisory board seems rather heavily weighted towards financial services providers and light on consumer advocates.

Sincere congratulations to Mr. Levitan.

May this appointment have NO effect on the open accessibility of this forum; nor temper Adam's contributions on behalf of consumer-debtors.

This forum and all member contributions - but especially his - have been critical to animating the current national debate. You have educated and engaged those of us who have been irreparably damaged by federal policy choices that have favored the financial services industry absolutely.

Please keep up the good work.
