Missouri CU Association endorses six state candidates
ST. LOUIS (8/26/08)--The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) is endorsing political candidates for the first time in its history. Six Missouri state legislators were endorsed by MCUA as of Monday. They include:
* Sen. Delbert Scott (R-28); * Sen. Chuck Graham (D-19); * Sen. Tim Green (D-13); * Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-19): * Rep. Charlie Denison (R-135); and * Rep. Paul LeVota (R-52).
MCUA endorses candidates based on these criteria:
* Lawmakers who have worked to pass credit union-sponsored legislation or support credit union statutory and regulatory initiatives; and * Candidates who have stated in a public forum their support of credit union statutory and regulatory initiatives.
Such initiatives include credit union field of memberships, financial education service to the financially underserved, increasing the value of the state credit union charter, and preserving and protecting an operational environment that promotes growth of Missouri credit unions. “The fact that candidates seek our endorsement demonstrates that credit union and their members are recognized as an influential voting block, representing the interests of Missouri consumers,” said Rosie Holub, MCUA president/CEO.
