An examination of Mr. Montgomery’s record will reveal a dedicated public servant and champion for homeownership, fully committed to ensuring the American Dream lives on for generations to come.During his October testimony before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Montgomery said, “Some of my Republican friends and colleagues still ask why I agreed to serve in a Democratic Administration and my answer has always been the same: they asked for my help.
