CMC: Special Report: Richard Cordray: Watchdog

June 10 @ 12:00 pm

A familiar name and face in Columbus, Rich Cordray has a new tell-all book “Watchdog: How Protecting Consumers Can Save Our Families, Our Economy, and Our Democracy,” where he reveals behind the scenes stories of his time as the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) during the 11 months he served under President Donald Trump. President Barack Obama appointed Cordray to be the first Director of the newly established CFPB in 2011. A small group housed at the Treasury Department led by Elizabeth Warren, created the CFPB under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). The purpose of the CFPB is to promote fairness and transparency for mortgages, credit cards, and other consumer financial products and services.

Featuring Richard Cordray, former Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from 2012 to 2017; former Ohio’s Attorney General, Solicitor General, and Treasurer and host, Colleen Marshall co-anchor WCMH NBC4.
