gathering in Tacoma of Washington credit union leaders and members of the state's financial education community. Because of legislative duties, Santos had been unable to accept her award during the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. last month. The award recognizes Santos' seven years of legislative leadership and innovation in the area of financial literacy. ( See News Now March 3 by using the link). "I could not do anything if I did not have the strength of the partnerships around this table.
