I've been called many things in my time, but there's one in particular I find I'm most proud of: public servant. There's a lot of people out there who think I've served for too long, but I love my community, my city, my state and our great nation too much to quit now. These are critical last two years, and I'm not done fighting yet.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a massive piece of financial reform legislation that I voted for and was signed by President Obama in 2010. Was it perfect? Of course not. No massive piece of legislation is perfect -- and that's why we constantly work to improve the law.
