CU System
Congressman to CUs I cherish what you do
ORLANDO, Fla. (4/7/09)--U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) recently told a group of credit union representatives at Orlando (Fla.) FCU that he cherishes what credit unions do. “Credit unions are special,” Grayson said. “They’ve avoided the problems that have laid our economy low. They did it in a simple way--by making the right decisions.” Credit unions made the right decisions because they support their communities, the congressman said. Many institutions and businesses are focused on making as much money as quickly as they can, but that model doesn’t work anymore, Grayson added. The model that does work is the one credit unions use--working together to make people’s lives better. Grayson said he’d like to see more cooperatives, and “I’d like to see more credit unions,” he added. For a video of Grayson’s speech, use the link.
