Thank you Mr. Chairman for allowing me the opportunity to speak before the committee today. It is my pleasure to welcome Ms. Henrietta Holsman Fore this afternoon before the Senate Banking Committee and to offer my recommendation for her appointment to the position of Director of the US Mint.
Ms. Fore is a fellow Nevadan and a continual leader. Having held previous Presidential appointments, Ms. Fore knows and surpasses the requisite criteria. Her reputation and background as a leader are beyond reproach. She has served since 1993 as Chairman of the Board and President of an international corporation in Las Vegas, Nevada, and also serves as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Holsman International in Washington DC. From 1990 to 1993, she served as Assistant Administrator in the Bureau for Private Enterprises and Assistant Administrator in the Bureau for Asia. Ms. Fore is a graduate of Wellesley College and received a Master's in Public Administration from the University of Northern Colorado. With her years of nationwide experience, both in government service and the private sector, she has refined the ingenuity and expertise that will enable her to excel as Director of the US Mint.
I urge my colleagues on the Senate Banking Committee to support the nomination of Ms. Henrietta Holsman Fore for Director of the US Mint. I am proud to introduce her today as both a leader of this community and as a fellow Nevadan. I thank you Mr. Chairman for allowing me to speak on her behalf today.
