Maine league part of governors inauguration events
PORTLAND, Maine (1/10/11)--Paul LePage was inaugurated Wednesday as Maine's 74th governor, with Maine's credit unions represented at the inauguration and other associated events. Maine Credit Union League President John Murphy attended the inauguration with members of the league’s governmental affairs team, including Quincy Hentzel, league director of governmental affairs; Phil Moreau, chair of the league Governmental Affairs Committee; Tucker Cole, chair of the league Political Involvement Committee, and other credit union officials (league’s newsletter, Weekly Update Jan. 7). Hentzel represented Maine’s credit unions at the Governor’s Reception. The league also was a sponsor of LePage’s inaugural activities. At the reception, Hentzel spoke briefly with LePage, who said he is looking forward to meeting with Maine's credit unions and working together in the coming weeks. U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) also attended and reiterated her support of credit unions. Snowe said she will be excited to see credit union officials at the league’s Breakfast for Maine’s Congressional Delegation, during the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference next month. “Our participation in this event goes a long way in building and strengthening relationships with the new governor and legislators,” Murphy said.
