Rush, director of the Department of Community Development for Cleveland, Ohio; Mark Wiseman, director of the Cuyahoga County Foreclosure Prevention Program; Michael Fratantoni, senior director of Single Family Research and Economics for the Mortgage Bankers Association; Deborah Oakley, senior vice president of Homeownership Preservation for National City Corp.; Vanessa Randolph, director of Fannie Mae-Northern Ohio Community Business Center; Lou Tisler, executive director of Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland; and Bryan Wolfe, vice president of The Ohio Farmers Union.
