CUs fare well in Michigans primary says league
NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (8/12/08)--Credit union-friendly candidates fared well in the Michigan primary election Aug. 5, says the Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL). Of the 66 State House candidates supported by the league's political action committee, MCULAF, 64 will move on to the general election Nov. 4, said Patrick La Pine, MCUL executive vice president (Michigan Monitor Aug. 11). In the federal races, one of the closest and most widely publicized races was in the 13th House District, where U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-Detroit), a co-sponsor of the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA), narrowly defeated challenger and former State Rep. Mary Waters of Detroit. The vote was 39% for Kilpatrick and 36% for Waters. State Sen. Martha Scott (D-Highland Park) received 25%. MCULAF-supported State Rep. Ted Hammon (D-Burton) lost to Jim Slezak of Davidson, and Gibraltar Mayor Jim Beaubien (D-23), also endorsed by MCULAF, lost to Woodhaven Brownstown Board of Education member Deb Kennedy. La Pine told the Monitor that in the coming weeks, the league's governmental affairs staff will prepare a list of targeted races and ask credit unions to turn out grassroots support.
