Four CU board members running for Maine House seats
PORTLAND, Maine (8/2/10)--Four credit union board members are running for seats in the Maine House, according to the Maine Credit Union League. The league board said it endorsed the candidacies of three recently--two incumbents and one newcomer--and a fourth before the spring primary, the league said in its newsletter (Weekly Update July 30). The candidates from credit unions are:
* Rep. Herbert Clark, a long-time legislator and vice chair of the board at Katahdin FCU, Millinocket; * Rep. Michael Lajoie, who is up for a second term and is board vice chair at Lewiston (Maine) Municipal FCU; * John Picciotti, board chair of KSW FCU, Waterville, who is running for an open seat; and * Ken Fredette, board member of Sebasticook Valley FCU, Pittsfield, and the only board member who was involved in a primary race.
"We are very fortunate to have credit union board members serve in the legislature, advocating on behalf of credit unions and our issues," said John Murphy, league president. He noted it was important to support credit union candidates early on. The league's political involvement committee will meet Aug. 11 to consider the majority of legislative candidates for endorsement, he said.
