Dear Keith Fitzgerald,
I’m a US citizen living abroad who is registered to vote in your district.
Currently, the following banks are refusing to refinance my mortgage simply because I am a US citizen, as a result of US policy:
Raiffeisen, Bank Coop, AXA Bank, Migros Bank, NAB, Valiant Bank AG, SwissLife, Hypothekarbank Lenzburg, Swissquote Bank, FinanzZentrum Jungfrau AG
I’ve written you as well as my representation in the US concerning issues facing American citizens living abroad, and received no response. I also contacted VA loans and the US Department of Housing on housing discrimination but was told that they don’t help American veterans living abroad.
While it is understandable that the US government will not help Americans who do not live in America, it is not understandable that the US government pressures banks abroad to refuse to refinance the mortgages of American citizens.
As such, I am requesting from you a letter of recommendation that I renounce my US citizenship. If you have any better suggestions, then let it be heard.
No response. Called and left a message on 29.8.2012 11am A staff member returned the call. I explained the situation to him and he felt that Keith Fitzgerald would be interested in taking action after being elected but didn’t have any time right now. I expressed concern that there was currently no indication that Keith Fitzgerald would address the matter after being elected and that expats are accustomed to not being represented. My spouse advised to take the issue directly to Obama.
