I am honored to serve as chairman of the Subcommittee for the Underserved and Community Empowerment for the U.S. President's Council, serving the President, and our nation. As announced last week at the May 10th, 2012, White House Financial Capability Summit, I was proud to announce that our Subcommittee, working in active partnership with the Partnership Subcommittee and my friend Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz who is chair of that subcommittee, has already delivered commitments for the first 100 Local Financial Literacy and Local Financial Capability Councils for the nation. See the full range of announcements from the Summit here. A special thank you to Vanessa Williams and the National Conference of Black Mayors here.
The best is yet to come.
Onward and with HOPE,
