Iowa league names political key contacts
DES MOINES, Iowa (1/23/09)--Seven Iowa credit union representatives were recently selected to serve as the Political Key Contacts (PKC) of the Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL) for 2009-10. The PKC system is a grassroots initiative that matches seven credit union members, who have a relationship with one of Iowa’s U.S. senators or state representatives. PKCs keep Iowa federal officials informed on credit union issues. The contacts also may be called upon, as needed, to travel to Washington, D.C., to lobby the Iowa congressional delegation. The PKC terms are two years for U.S. representatives, and six years for senators. In congratulating the appointees, Patrick Jury, league president/CEO, said, “We sincerely appreciate their willingness to lead the league, and connect with congressmen on important issues affecting our industry.” Those appointed are:
* Gregg Liddle, Dupaco Community CU, Dubuque, key contact for U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley (D-1); * Jim Hagerman, Linn Area Community CU, Cedar Rapids, for U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-2); * Mike Harvey, Veridian CU, Waterloo, for U.S Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-3); * Paul Becker, Citizens Community CU, Fort Dodge, for U.S. Rep. Tom Latham (R-4); * Janine Keim, Consumers CU, Denison, for U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-5); and * Denise Dolan, Dupaco Community CU, for U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D);
Mark Heth, Iowa Community CU, Waterloo, was not up for appointment this year and will continue to serve as the contact for U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R).
