Sign-on needed: Ask Sen. Kirk to confirm Richard Cordray

They’re at it again: 43 Republican Senators vowed to block the confirmation of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray unless the CFPB is stripped of its independence. We need your help to make sure that the CFPB has the authority and leadership it needs to make the financial marketplace safe for consumers.

Director Cordray’s term will end at the end of this year unless his appointment is re-confirmed by Congress. The Senate confirmation hearing is scheduled for next Tuesday, March 12 at 9am CST. With Senator Mark Kirk on the Senate Banking Committee, Illinois is in a unique position to advocate for Cordray’s confirmation. Please sign on to this letter to Senator Kirk asking him to confirm Director Cordray without holding consumers hostage to fringe demands that would substantially weaken the CFPB.

We need your support as soon as possible. Please contact Courtney Eccles at or 312-368-0310 by Friday, March 8 and let me know whether you can sign on to this letter. Please pass it along to your networks as well.
