What’s in it for me?

Reason #24 to be involved with Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC): PERSONAL INDEPENDENT ACCESS.

The Urban Financial Services Coalition Mortgage Crisis Task Force (UFSCMCTF) worked directly with the gentleman quoted in the attached article, Mr. Neel Kashkari.

Mr. Kashkari was in President Bush’s

Washington DC Treasury Department during the recent Financial Recession Crisis and the TARP $700 Billion bailout.

If UFSC did not exist, our INDEPENDENT VOICE and ACCESS to opportunities would be missing.

Are you on a UFSC Chapter Committee? Get involved, get ACCESS.

What if this were a financial company he was applying to? He would not get past the first interview- right? Be aware. Financial Professionals are fully engaged as CITIZENS with a lawful VOICE. This video indicates a dangerous trend because these judge candidates would be given awesome authority to rule on matters related to your family, your job, your business, your property ownership rights, your food, your right to professional health services and many other areas.
