She throws down a proposal for new ethics rules that have everyone up in arms because they still lack the requirement for fiduciary care of clients and then leaves. I for one will not be sad to see her go. This opens up a glimmer of hope that the CFP Board might pick up the banner of representing the consumer again and advocate that all CFPs must be held to a fiduciary standard.

Considering that over a third of CFPs come from the broker/dealer world where their employers will not let them accept a fiduciary responsability, this is highly unlikely however.
