CU-backed candidate loses bid in Oregon
BEAVERTON, Ore. (5/21/10)--A credit union-backed candidate lost his bid for state treasurer in Oregon, but the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) said it was thrilled so many credit unions reached out to support him. Sen. Rick Metsger (D-Ore.) had run for state treasurer in Tuesday’s state primary election. Several credit unions in the state had placed messages of thanks on their websites to support Metsger, a longtime credit union friend. “While the election didn’t turn out as we had hoped for Metsger, we were thrilled that so many credit unions reached out with a message in support of Metsger through their websites and social media tools,” said Laura Wieking, CUAO communications director. “Oregon has a very active advocate base and as technology advances, we’re encouraged to try new tactics to support friends of credit unions who are running for office,” he said. “We believe it is important to support those who have supported credit unions, and Metsger was our leading advocate in the Senate for many years.” Credit unions supporting Metsger included:
* Valley Health and Postal CU, Salem; * Unitus Community CU, Portland; * Northwest Community CU, Eugene; * OSU FCU, Corvallis; * Oregon Community CU, Eugene; * OnPoint Community CU, Portland; * Advantis CU, Portland; and * US Agencies CU, Portland.
