Voto Latino Congratulates Jaime Lizarraga on Nomination to SEC
Washington – Today President Biden nominated Jaime Lizarraga, a senior advisor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to a seat on the Securities and Exchange Commission. In response to the nomination, Voto Latino President and CEO Maria Teresa Kumar issued the following statement:
“Jaime Lizarraga is a model public servant and a superb choice for a seat on this commission. Over the course of his career, he’s worked to tackle some of the biggest issues we face as a country, but he’s never forgotten how government needs to work for individuals and families who are simply trying to live their lives, take care of their families and contribute to their communities. Jamie is as brilliant as he is kind—and I’m glad that he’ll bring both of those qualities to an institution as important as the SEC.”
