CU board member is Maine House minority leader
PORTLAND, Maine (11/19/12)--Rep. Ken Fredette (R), a board member at Sebasticook Valley FCU, Pittsfield, Maine, has been selected as the new minority leader of the Maine House of Representatives.

Fredette, who was elected to his second term in the Nov. 6 General Election, was a strong advocate and leader on credit union issues during the last legislature, according to the Maine Credit Union League (Weekly Update Nov. 16).

"Having someone who so intimately understands issues of importance to credit unions and the impact of legislation on credit union operations is a real plus when we discuss pieces of legislation," said league President John Murphy. "Ken was a go-to leader on many of our issues in the last legislature, and we look forward to working with him in his new leadership position."

Of the five leaders selected in the Maine house, four were endorsed by the league. Rep. Alexander Willette (R) was selected as assistant house minority leader. Rep. Mark Eves (D) was selected as speaker of the house. Rep. Seth Berry was selected as house majority leader.
