Brown Statement on Christy Goldsmith Romero Nomination to Chair the FDIC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, congratulated Christy Goldsmith Romero on her nomination to be Chair of the Board of Directors of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and issued the following statement:

“Christy Goldsmith Romero, who has been unanimously confirmed by the Senate twice, would bring to the FDIC decades of financial services experience, including valuable experience as the Special Inspector General protecting taxpayers at the Troubled Asset Relief Program. She has proven herself to be a strong, independent, and fair regulator who is not afraid to do what’s right. I call on the entire Banking and Housing Committee, Senate leadership, and the full Senate to move quickly to bring new leadership to the FDIC at this challenging time.

“I’d also like to congratulate Caroline Crenshaw, Kristin Johnson, and Gordon Ito on their nominations. I look forward to holding a hearing in the coming weeks to consider and then advance these highly qualified nominees.”
