1:36 am
robust market. we were especially vulnerable because the district is unique in another way. that is we cannot spend our own money spend our own without an appropriations bill from congress. economy may have lost as much as, ladies and gentlemen, $1 million over the 2.5 week we thethe city government, city government was involved in this. we kept our government open by spending our reserves. our police state on the beat and the garbage trucks continued to pick up. i am sure you can imagine the psychological impact on people considering a buying a home during the shut down and the
1:37 am
weeks leading up to it. this is especially true in this region with its reliance on the federal government as it has been for decades. badou know, uncertainty is especially bad for the housing market. in fact, sales which usually pick up in the fall actually slowed down from the summer here in the district of columbia. consumer sentiment naturally fell to a nine-month low after the shut down and undoubtedly the same thing happened here. i think we all know that is not helpful when you are trying to get the economy back on its feet again. consider the damage to the housing market, the broader likelihood and's
1:38 am
struggling businesses all for a maneuver that in my opinion accomplished absolutely nothing. i am hopeful that the forces driving the strong housing market during the first half of the year will continue especially here in the district of columbia. while sales slowed from august to september, this september was actually stronger than a year ago. what is driving us here in the district? housesare seeing their after being underwater. our population is growing. growing by the way by the rate of 1100 people a month. and so is demand for housing. my administration is working hard to die for us by our economy and bringing in new businesses and new endeavors so we do not have to rely on much on the government as the

mortgage licensing system. a collaborative effort by state regulators to bring greater efficiency and accountability to the supervision of the mortgage industry to stop -- industry. we are part of the american morgan -- mortgage association. which is dedicated to creating more effective mortgage supervision through an exchange of ideas among the states and the district of columbia. licensing activity shows the strength of the mark begich -- of the mortgage, licensed almoste lenders rise by 25%. had 830 now, we over 1000. mortgage loan originators have risen by more than a quarter.

1:48 am
myself. i used to label my profession. i learned a more strategic description is to include all of us together as real estate finance. perspective was centered on home ownership. my colleagues talk to me that housing is about having a home whether you own it or rent it. i now know that commercial lending is more than financing buildings. it's about creating community centers and helping gathering places and developing culture. i learned their regulators, policymakers, and all other stakeholders must be treated as business partners. to get anything accomplished, we must align and work together. and our common ground is always the well-being of consumers.
1:49 am
and getting to know so many of you, i have learned first-hand that the vast, vast majority of lenders are caring individuals who are fully committed to the borrower and two running responsible businesses. and finally, i have discovered that i am not a done wanting to serve and so i am very excited to embrace a new role as the chairman of mba's open doors foundation. i am looking forward to expanding the giving efforts so that lenders have yet another meaningful way to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable housing through giving. i have so many people to thank. in addition to my industry friends and colleagues, i would like to express my sincere gratitude to the men and women of mba staff for their leadership, hard work, and
