Brown Applauds The Nomination Of Tanya Otsuka To Be A Member Of The NCUA Board

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs – released the following statement after the Biden Administration announced the nomination of Tanya Otsuka to be a member of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board. Currently, Otsuka works for Chair Brown as Senior Counsel for the Senate Banking and Housing Committee.

“Tanya Otsuka is an exceptional choice to serve as a National Credit Union Administration board member. As a public servant, Ms. Otsuka has dedicated her entire career to fighting for consumers, credit unions and other small financial institutions, and a strong financial system,” said Brown. “On the Banking and Housing Committee, she has earned a reputation as a respected leader, reliable teammate, and a trusted advisor. She will bring a fresh perspective and support for the President’s work to build an economy centered on working families. If confirmed, she would be the first Asian American to serve on the NCUA Board in the agency’s 53 year history. I fully support her historic nomination and urge my colleagues to do the same.”
