State-level candidates receive MarylandDC CUs support
COLUMBIA, Md. (10/14/10)--The Maryland and District of Columbia Credit Union Association (MDDCCUA) has given support to several state-level candidates in the November elections. The MDDCCUA board has endorsed Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot as he seeks re-election. It named him to “Friend of Credit Unions” status. “Maryland credit unions strongly approve of the work that Comptroller Franchot has done over the past four years,” said MDDCCUA Interim CEO Jennifer Simmons. “Credit unions have been particularly thankful of Franchot’s passion for financial literacy education, and look forward to continuing to work with him on ensuring that Maryland public high school students graduate with a firm understanding of how to properly manage one’s finances.” The board also has voted to endorse Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler for re-election and bestowed upon him the “Friend of Credit Unions” status. “Maryland credit unions believe that Attorney General Gansler is a strong advocate for consumers,” said Simmons. “We hope to forge a strong working relationship with the Attorney General as credit unions work to deliver the best possible services for consumers.” The board also endorsed 40 candidates seeking seats in the Maryland General Assembly under the “Friend of Credit Unions” status.
