Michaud addresses Maine league meeting
PORTLAND, Maine (7/9/14)--The potential future governor of Maine dropped in to speak at the Maine Credit Union League's annual meeting and convention last month, discussing the positive impact credit unions have had on his life as he addressed the nearly 750 attendees at the event.

Rep. Mike Michaud (D-Maine) tells the credit union professionals in attendance at the Maine Credit Union League's annual meeting and convention that his history with credit unions is "decades long for good reason."
Rep. Mike Michaud (D-Maine), a longtime credit union member and a current board member at Eastmill FCU, East Millinocket, Maine, with $61 million in assets, described his history with credit unions as "decades long for good reason."

"Credit unions are always there to help people," said Michaud, who's been endorsed by the league in his bid for governor. "They helped me as a teenager when I needed a loan for a car and have helped me ever since. The league and credit unions have supported me in every one of my campaigns and I very much appreciate their support again this year because it will be critical to helping me become the next governor."

League President John Murphy called Michaud's understanding and support for credit unions very helpful over the years and said he has been a great friend to the movement through his days in the state Legislature, which included a stint as Senate President, and as a member of Congress for the past 12 years.

"He would be a great governor and be a leader on credit union issues," Murphy said. "As we have on his other campaigns, we will work hard to make that happen."
