Mich. gubernatorial hopefuls job tour stops at CU
LANSING, Mich. (4/15/10)--U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), a candidate for Michigan governor, visited Frankenmuth (Mich.) CU Monday as part of his “100 Jobs Across the State” tour. He led the Republican gubernatorial field in the most recent state poll, said the Michigan Credit Union League. Hoekstra went inside the $214.5 million asset credit union to meet its members and staff, and to learn about the credit union’s functions. Credit union staff informed him about the local economy and the steps their institution is taking to improve it. “It was really neat that he got to see the inner workings of the credit union to understand how things happen behind the scenes,” said Vickie Schmitzer, Frankenmuth CEO. “It’s a wonderful event for both our staff and our members, and we were happy to be involved and share it with the community.” Hoekstra also worked for a half-hour behind a teller window greeting members, and then helped credit union staff review an application for a small-business loan--a prime focus for the credit union. Staff told Hoekstra about the credit union’s recent growth, the most recent area bankruptcy numbers and what the credit union is doing to prevent and mitigate members’ financial problems.
