Community, civic and industry leaders were on hand to congratulate E1's entrance into unincorporated Los Angeles, which has not seen a financial institution open in more than 20 years. The branch opening comes at a time of increasing redevelopment and financial opportunities for the area, said the credit union in a press release. During the ceremony, State Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero officially opened her membership with E1. "I now know what E1 stands for," she said. "It stands for East L.A.'s first credit union." The branch is located underneath Romero's district office. As part of the ceremony, the California Credit Union League presented certificates of appreciation to Romero and L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina for their dedication to redevelopment in the community and their support of credit unions.
