NHDP - Former Banking Lobbyist Jerry Little Continues to Fight for Banking Industry Against NH Homeowners and Families

Little Argues Against Common-Sense Measure to Give Consumers Earlier Notice Prior to a Foreclosure Sale
Concord, N.H. – Yesterday, former banking lobbyist turned Senator, Jerry Little, continued to fight for the banking industry (which made up nearly 30% of Little’s campaign contributions) against the interests of New Hampshire homeowners and families.

Little led the fight on the floor of the Senate against SB 158, a common-sense bill to give consumers earlier notice prior to a foreclosure sale on their house. The bill received a bipartisan 4-1 vote in committee in favor of passage.  
When explaining the existing policies that certain banks choose to follow to notify delinquent consumers, Little referred to the banking industry as “we,” saying, then “we mail a letter to every past due customer...”   
“Former banking lobbyist Jerry Little may be a Senator now, but he’s still fighting on behalf of his banking cronies against the interests of New Hampshire homeowners and families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “Little needs to acknowledge his conflict of interest, get out of the way, and let this commonsense bill to strengthen consumer protections for homeowners pass.”
