Elizabeth Warren

Sign the petition on this page from a coalition of organizations to Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Republican presidential candidates:

Wall Street influence is a major issue in the 2016 election. One of the most consequential things a president can do is appoint people who have a record of challenging Wall Street power.

As Senator Elizabeth Warren says: Personnel is policy. Please give the public some specific examples of people you would consider for key posts that our nation relies on to challenge Wall Street power -- including Treasury Secretary, Attorney General, and SEC Chair. And please be transparent about factors you will use when making appointments for these key positions. 

NBC's Chuck Todd: "Six of the last Treasury Secretaries either came from Wall Street or went to Wall Street after. I think there certainly right now isn't an appetite for somebody from Wall Street to be the next Treasury Secretary...Do you think you can pick one without having them have a Wall Street background?" (Meet The Press, question to Hillary Clinton, Jan. 7, 2016)

Elizabeth Warren says, "Anyone who wants to be president should appoint only people who have already demonstrated that they are independent, who have already demonstrated that they will hold giant banks accountable." (Netroots Nation speech, July 17, 2015) "Personnel is policy." (Warren NY Times Op-Ed, Jan. 29, 2016)
