Also in attendance were: Thomas Powers, CEO, and Roland Faucher, president/board chair, Hudson River Teachers FCU, Mohegan Lake; William Spearman, president/CEO, Mid-Hudson Valley FCU, Kingston; and Mark Welshoff, president/CEO, Palisades FCU, Pearl River. During their time with Hayworth, the group discussed the unique structure and philosophy of credit unions and their role in the financial services industry. They emphasized credit unions’ legislative priorities, including interchange, supplemental capital and member business lending. “The credit union leaders in attendance clearly demonstrated the credit union difference to Representative Hayworth, providing her with numerous examples of the ways they have benefited their members--her constituents--and the communities in her district,” shared Michael Lanotte, association senior vice president and general counsel. “Congresswoman Hayworth was very engaged, and our priorities aligned with her position on taxes and a competitive, fair business environment,” he added. “The meeting established a solid foundation for building a strong relationship.” Hayworth serves on the House Financial Services Committee.
