N.Y. association-supported candidate wins Senate seat
ALBANY, N.Y. (3/19/10)--New York State Rep. Jose R. Peralta (D-Metropolitan) won a special election for a Senate seat Tuesday that was vacated by ousted State Sen. Hiram Monserrate. Peralta was endorsed by the Credit Union Association of New York. Peralta has always had a clear understanding of the issues credit unions face, the association said. He co-sponsored credit union bills that would allow credit union participation in municipal deposits and the excelsior linked deposit program. “With his history of championing issues important to our credit unions, the members they serve and the communities they live in, we are happy that Peralta will now have a voice in our state senate,” said William J. Mellin, association president/CEO. Peralta was elected to the state assembly in 2002. As chairman of the banking subcommittee, he has expanded the number of branches serving low-income communities.
