Former Rep. Brad Miller will join the Washington-based Center for American Progress as a senior fellow for economic policy.
Miller, a Raleigh Democrat, will work with the housing finance and policy team on foreclosure prevention, neighborhood stabilization, and housing-finance reform, s well as on broader financial-services issues and systemic risk concerns.
“His vast experience shaping the policy debate will play a valuable role in our efforts to strengthen the middle class and grow the economy by ensuring that more Americans have access to stable and affordable housing,” said Neera Tanden, the center's president and a former staffer in the Clinton and Obama administrations.
The center is a liberal think tank formed in 2003 to be a counterweight to the conservative Heritage Foundation.
Miller served a decade in the U.S. House, representing the 13th district, but did not seek re-election, when the Republicans redrew his district to give it a strong GOP orientation. Miller served on the House Financial Services Committee where he was heavily involved in financial reform legislation.
