Ohio CUs work hard to inform candidates
Keith Brooks, Capital Advocates; Ohio Senate candidate Karen Gillmor; and John Kozlowski, Ohio Credit Union League general counsel, recently met to discuss credit unions.
DUBLIN, Ohio (8/18/08)--Several Ohio credit unions and the Ohio Credit Union League worked to inform candidates about credit union issues at recent meetings and events. John Kozlowski, league general counsel, and Keith Brooks of Capitol Advocates, a Columbus lobbying firm, met with state Senate candidate Karen Gillmor about credit union issues. Gillmor was pleased to hear about credit unions’ sound mortgage lending practices, the league said (eLumination Aug. 13). “Sen. Gillmor was especially interested in the financial education initiatives put forth by the league and Ohio’s credit unions,” Kozlowski said. With one son in high school and two in middle school, she understands the importance and value of learning wise money management at a young age.” Midwest Community FCU, Defiance, gave U.S. Rep. Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) a tour of the credit union Aug. 11. Latta met with credit union CEO Sonja Delaney, board members and management staff.

The Mahoning Valley Chapter hosted a golf outing with U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Niles), and state Reps. Ron Gerberry (D-Austintownship) and Tom Letson (D-Warren). It also hosted an evening reception with state Rep. Sandra Harwood and Rose Bartolomucci, Ohio Division of Financial Institutions deputy superintendent for credit unions. Western CU, Columbus, invited State Sen. Steve Stivers (R-Columbus) to the credit union Aug. 7. Credit unions play an important economic role in the communities they serve, he told credit union staff. Stivers said he would support legislation that gives credit unions more capacity to serve members, particularly in member business lending. Kozlowski and John Florian, league vice president of government affairs, also attended the meeting.
