The citizens of Mountain House, who were deeply saddened by the skyrocketing foreclosure rate in their municipality, joined together and formed an association. They turned to Rep. Jerry McNerney for help, and he delivered. The congressman and his very professional staff created at least two workshops to give aid to homeowners. Banks and mortgage companies attended.
I know from personal experience regarding this workshop and letters written to the comptroller of the currency who has oversight over banks, that McNerney has been a loyal friend and supporter of people in fiscal peril.
He never stopped to ask whether that constituent was a Democrat or Republican.
There are incredible demands on a representative’s time, especially those on the West Coast who fly back and forth to Washington, D.C., through three time zones. The congressman and his staff consistently gave their time to help those who needed it.
McNerney never tried to advertise this fact. As I am privy to the information, I’d like to take this opportunity to let readers know about his concern and involvement.
