Michigan CUs PAC in states top 15
LANSING, Mich. (8/23/11)--The Michigan Credit Union League Action Fund (MCULAF), the Michigan Credit Union League’s (MCUL) state political action committee (PAC), has moved steeply up the list of the top 150 Michigan PACs, ranking 15th just after the mid-point of 2011, according to the Michigan Campaign Finance Network. As of July 20, MCULAF had raised $129,984, a 15.7% increase over the $112,372 raised during the same time frame in 2009 (Michigan Monitor Aug. 22). The 2011 numbers place MCULAF ahead of PACs operated by AT&T, the Michigan Restaurant Association, the Michigan Bankers Association, the Michigan Association of Insurance Agents, Michigan Association of CPAs and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. “This is an outstanding accomplishment, and recognition is owed to all those individuals who contribute to our state PAC, as well as to the many devoted Michigan credit union people who dedicate time and energy to PAC fundraising,” said Dave Adams, CEO of MCUL & Affiliates. “Strong PACs are an important part of our legislative advocacy efforts--but we can't afford to ease up in our efforts,” he added. “It’s worth noting that the Comerica PAC alone placed 13th at $138,922.”
