Fla. league endorses Sink in special election for U.S. Rep.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (2/5/14)--The board of the Florida Credit Union Association (FCUA) endorsed Democrat Alex Sink for Florida's open seat in the 13th Congressional District for the upcoming March 11 special election.
 
Sink and Republican David Jolly are running in the special election that will fill the seat of Rep. Bill Young (R), who died in October.
 
Sink served as the chief financial officer for the state of Florida, a time during which she forged working relationship with credit unions.
 
"Alex has a keen understanding of the difficulties facing credit unions today," said Patrick La Pine, president/CEO, League of Southeastern Credit Unions. "She realizes that credit unions play an important role in helping Americans, as well as Floridians, get on solid financial footing."
 
"Her background in financial services gives her an instant knowledge base on today's complex financial issues and regulations," La Pine added.
 
"Receiving the support of the Florida Credit Union Association's board of directors means a lot to me," Sink said. "Credit unions are a diverse group that mirrors our local communities. They are working to help Floridians get affordable loans as well as providing financial counseling so members can get out of debt and begin saving money."
 
FCUA is an affiliate of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions.
 
The Credit Union Legislative Action Council, the federal political action committee for the Credit Union National Association, contributed $10,000 to Sink's campaign.
