LAKELAND, Fla. (7/3/12)--A letter to the editor from a Florida couple espousing the credit union difference was published Monday in the TheLedger.com.
Nelson and Mary Burke shared their positive experiences as members of MidFlorida CU, Lakeland, Fla.
"While purchasing a new vehicle, we turned to a variety of loan sources," the Burkes wrote. "Every single bank was totally uncooperative, while credit unions were more than happy to have our business. In fact, MidFlorida CU, went above and beyond in making the deal happen in the least amount of time with the most favorable interest rate."
The Burkes also complemented MidFlorida CU for the great member service they received.
"Advantages of a credit union are local service, employees who truly care about their customers and keeping the money locally, so that our community benefits," they wrote.
