CBA’s Hunt on Speaker Ryan Retirement

April 11, 2018

WASHINGTON - Consumer Bankers Association President and CEO Richard Hunt issued the following statement after House Speaker Paul Ryan announced he would retire following his current term:

"Speaker Ryan is a visionary leader for not just his party but also for the entire Congress. He has spent his entire career - both as a Member of Congress and staffer before that - doing his homework, tackling the tough issues and producing results. His success has stemmed directly from his direct, honest approach. When Paul Ryan gives you his word; he means it.

"I have known him since his first day in office and the dedication to serving the people of Wisconsin he brought on day one has never waned. I wish him, his wife Janna and children all the best as I know they look forward to spending more time together in Janesville."
