I was pleased to join U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, the Honorable Thomas Curry, following our meeting recently in Washington, D.C. Comptroller Curry is a good man, and Operation HOPE is looking forward to growing and deepening our working relationship with Comptroller Curry and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in the weeks, months and years to come. HOPE has worked with this office consistently over the past 20 years.
I was tickled to learn that the first Comptroller of the Currency, pictured here behind the two of us, was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Who says government service cannot be a noble professional that changes the world.
