CU System
Maine CU officials are winners on election day
PORTLAND, Maine (11/21/11)--Two Maine credit union officials won political races on the Nov. 8 election day in the state, according to the Maine Credit Union League.

Ray Wallace, who serves on the su­pervisory committee at Maine Highlands FCU, Dexter, won a special election to fill the vacant State House seat in District 24. Wallace becomes the fifth credit union volunteer currently serving in the 125th Maine Legislature (Weekly Update Nov. 18).

"We congratu­late Ray on his victory and look forward to having another member in the legislature who has a unique understanding and insight of credit unions," said Maine league President John Murphy.

Dan Emery, marketing specialist at Maine State CU, Augusta, won his first political contest when he was elected to an at-large seat on the Augusta City Council.

"We support and en­courage our employees to be involved in community and public service," said Normand R. Dubreuil, Maine State president/CEO. "Dan's victory reflects well on the credit union and our commitment to the credit union philosophy of 'people helping people'," he told the league.
