Of the 151 members of the Maine House, four are credit union board members, the largest contingent of credit union board members ever serving in the legislature at the same time, said the league (News & Views November).

Legislators recognized are:

  • Rep. Herb Clark (D-Millinocket), currently serving his 12th, non-consecutive term in the Maine House. He is vice-chair at Katahdin FCU, where he has served on the board since 1996.
  • Rep. Michel Lajoie (D-Lewiston), serving his second term in the House. Lajoie is in his 14th year as a volunteer at Lewiston Municipal FCU, where he is currently board chair.
  • Rep.  John Picchiotti (R-Fairfield), serving his first term in the House. Picchiotti is current board chair at KSW FCU and is a member of the legislature's Insurance and Financial Services Committee, which hears many measures impacting credit unions.
  • Rep. Ken Fredette (R-Newport), serving his first term in the House.  Fredette is a 15-year board member and past board chair at Sebasticook Valley FCU.
"Having individuals that not only support credit unions but who, as a credit union board member, bring that perspective to issues and legislation and what the impact would be to credit unions and members is invaluable," said John Murphy, league president. "We are fortunate to have four board members currently serving in the legislature. They are great advocates and friends, and we appreciate their efforts and service."
