With many new faces and leaders in the legislature, the league said it was pleased with the strong turn out. During the morning, about 125 of the 186 members of the Maine Legislature visited credit union and league representatives. Among those who stopped by were Speaker of the House Robert Nutting (R), Assistant Majority Leader Andre Cushing (R) and Senate Minority Leader Barry Hobbins (D). Four credit union board members--serving dual roles as credit union volunteers and members of the Maine House--visited with the group. The league provided legislators with credit union statistics, a newsletter and a new flyer highlighting the leadership and participation of Maine’s credit unions in youth financial education efforts. “We were able to discuss some of the issues of interest to credit unions and to educate new legislators about the benefits that credit unions provide to Maine consumers,” said John Murphy, president of the league. Also, both legislative chambers passed a joint resolution recognizing the Maine Credit Union League and Maine’s credit unions for the positive and significant contributions they have made to Maine citizens for more than 89 years.
