Response from Senator Bob Menendez to the “Dumb Auditor” Article
Dear Mr. Font:
Thank you for contacting me to express your opinion on banking reform. Your opinion is very important to me, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to you on this crucial issue.
I appreciate you taking the time to provide your ideas on how we can make changes to the banking industry to improve its efficiency and transparency. Every day New Jerseyans are working very hard to provide for their families, but current market conditions have made it difficult for families to save or access credit. The financial collapse last year demonstrated the need for increased transparency to protect investors and consumers from fraud and irresponsibility. Americans simply cannot afford the risks associated with widespread economic instability such as losses of jobs, savings, and benefits. I am committed to ensuring that our financial markets are fully regulated and operate in the best interest of the American people.
As a member of the Senate Banking Committee, I have long stood for financial reforms that promote smart, healthy, and sustainable development. I rely on the important communications I receive from my constituents to guide my work in the United States Senate. On this, as with any issue, there are many different view points, but please rest assured that I will continue to work diligently to respond to the many valuable insights I receive from New Jerseyans like you.
Finding solutions to the issues you raise is what drives me to keep standing up for New Jersey families. Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of more assistance.
