Congressman Poliquin Notes Proud CU Membership At Visits To Maine CUs

August 11, 2015 

In the past three weeks, Congressman Bruce Poliquin has visited three Maine credit unions, and reiterated his support for credit unions and also noted that he is a long-time credit union member.  Last week, Congressman Poliquin made his first appearance in the Town of Ellsworth since taking office, and that visit was to Seaboard FCU's branch, and he also visited NorState FCU in Madawaska.

Kyle Casburn, President/CEO of Seaboard FCU, said, "We were honored that Congressman Poliquin chose our credit union for his visit to Ellsworth.  It reinforces the positive relationship that the Congressman has with credit unions, and recognizes the important role that credit unions have in the community."

Sue Whitehead, President/CEO at NorState FCU, observed, "We appreciate Congressman Poliquin taking the time to meet with our staff and members, and to listen to our concerns and issues.  He praised credit unions for the services they provide to communities and members, and appears to have a strong desire and willingness to help create a better operating environment for credit unions to do even more."

For his part, Congressman Poliquin was impressed "by the level of engagement on the part of credit union staff and members, and by the warm welcome I have received."  In a TV interview on WAGM-TV in Presque Isle, the Congressman noted his visit the previous day to NorState FCU and even mentioned a "delicious whoopie pie that was made by a member of the CU's staff, and how wonderful it was.  It was a great visit."
