Our Leadership Chair, Ben Carter, speaks truth to power ...
... fizzy water and fussy coffee in hand.
So, I was surprised to see Ballard Cassady, president and CEO of the Kentucky Bankers Association, claim that "Kentucky bankers are the only ones concerned with protecting consumers." This statement is as self-absorbed as HB 470 was self-serving for the mortgage servicing industry.
If you believe the KBA's claim that it supported HB 470 because it benefits consumers, I have some AAA-rated mortgage-backed securities to sell you.
In case you didn't know, Ben is a lawyer than handles a lot of foreclosure cases. A lot.
