Oregon CU advocates help raise candidates profile
BEAVERTON, Ore. (5/19/10)--Eight Oregon credit unions put a message of thanks on their website home pages to raise the profile for Sen. Rick Metsger (D-Ore.), who ran for state treasurer in Tuesday’s election. Results were not yet available as of press time. Metsger has supported credit unions for many years, according to the Credit Union Association of Oregon. UFCW FCU, Portland, placed information about Metsger on its Facebook page, and Rogue FCU met with the senator in Medford and said it would get the word out on his campaign to membership. CUAO also advocated for Metsger. CUAO named Metsger its Legislator of the Decade at last year’s annual meeting. The treasurer position opened after the death of another longtime credit union friend, Ben Westlund, in March, said CUAO.
