CU System
CU supporter to run for Oregon state office
BEAVERTON, Ore. (11/26/07)--Oregon State Sen. Rick Metsger (D), a long-time credit union supporter, announced his intention Tuesday to enter the Democratic primary for Oregon Secretary of State in the 2008 election. More than 40 credit union supporters attended the announcement made in Portland, Ore. Metsger also made a stop at the Eugene branch of OnPoint Community CU to be available to area press. “Senator Metsger’s ability to find consensus on difficult issues is well-respected in the Oregon Senate,” said Pamela Leavitt, senior vice president of governmental affairs and communications for the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO). “His knowledge and support of issues important to credit unions makes him a staunch ally for our credit unions.” Metsger’s history with credit unions started when he served on the board of directors as vice chairman of OnPoint Community CU--then Portland Teachers CU. As chair of the Senate Business Committee, he was instrumental in helping pass credit union priority legislation for the past two legislative sessions, CUAO said.
