Michaud Earns Endorsement Of The Maine Credit Union League

October 31, 2013


(L-R) Congressman Mike Michaud shakes hands with John Murphy, President of the Maine Credit Union League, after receiving the League's endorsement for his candidacy for Governor.

The Maine Credit Union League, which represents Maine's 61 credit unions with 633,000 members, today endorsed the campaign of U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud for governor of Maine.

"From his time in the state legislature including serving as Senate President to his six terms in Congress, Congressman Michaud has been a great friend to Maine's credit unions.  Having served as a credit union volunteer for several years, he has a unique understanding of our issues and the impact that legislation can have on credit unions and members.  He also has a deep appreciation of the positive role that credit unions play in the lives of thousands of Maine consumers and in the communities they serve," remarked John Murphy, President/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League. 

Maine credit unions are member-owned-and-directed nonprofit cooperatives that provide financial services for their members.

"It's our shared commitment to Maine's economy that makes the endorsement of the Maine Credit Union League so important to me," Michaud said. "Maine's credit unions are democracy in action. Locally owned and member-directed, they put the interests of their community first. Our economy relies on small businesses and the middle class. When they grow it helps everyone, and Maine’s credit unions are helping them to grow. I'd like to thank the Maine Credit Union League for the work they do in their communities and for this important endorsement."

Michaud is a former board member and is now an honorary credit union board member at Eastmill Federal Credit Union in East Millinocket, ME.
