President Trump to Appoint Sanders to Advisory Board

President Donald J. Trump announced last week his intent to appoint former Oklahoma Rep. and House Majority Leader Mike Sanders to serve as a member of the Community Development Advisory Board.

The board advises the director of the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, which was created to promote economic revitalization and community development through investment in and assistance to CDFIs. The fund’s mission is to expand economic opportunity for underserved people and communities by supporting the growth and capacity of a national network of community development lenders, investors, and financial service providers.

“It’s an honor to be asked to serve in this capacity by President Trump,” Sanders said. “I look forward to adding Oklahoma’s voice to this national board, which has the potential to impact policies important to all Oklahomans but particularly those in our rural communities and in our tribal gov ernments. When those in rural Oklahoma and in our tribes thrive and see economic and job growth, our entire state benefits.”
