Colorado CUs advance their cause during primary
DENVER (8/18/08)--Although not all of them won, credit union candidates were strongly supported during Tuesday’s primary in Colorado, and credit unions dramatically advanced their cause, according to the Credit Union Association of Colorado (CUAC). “CUAC has gained a stronger voice in the political arena, creating benefits, regardless of the outcome,” said John Dill, CUAC president/CEO. “Even though the results may not be what we wished on election day, our efforts in the election process give us opportunities to work with whoever wins as we are seen as a political player.” CUAC-endorsed candidate Rollie Heath won his bid for state Senate District 16, and endorsed candidate Sean Conway won his bid for Weld County commissioner. Other CUAC-endorsed candidates:
* Joan Fitz-Gerland lost to Jared Polis in the 2nd congressional district; * Jeff Crank was second place in the 5th congressional district to Doug Lamborn. Lamborn reinforced his desire to work with CUAC; * Ted Harvey came in third to Mike Coffman in the 6th congressional district race. Coffman told CUAC he looks forward to working with the association; and * Matt Bergles lost in State House District 8.
Colorado credit unions actively participated in campaigning by walking precincts and calling members, the association said. Its CU Get Out the Vote program had nearly 100 campaign volunteers and made more than 115,000 communications on behalf of the credit union-supported candidates.
