In iRoll Calli Mica says sunshine great for CUs
WASHINGTON (11/6/08)—President-elect Barack Obama’s intention to bring sunshine to lobbying efforts is great news for credit unions, according to Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica. Mica, featured in a Nov. 5 post-election article in Roll Call, noted, “The Obama camp has had study groups working all summer long on changes they would make on how advocacy would take place in this town. “They’re talking about having complete and total transparency in advocacy.” That, the CUNA leader said, would give a great boost to credit union advocacy efforts. Mica called the Obama plan “tremendous.” “That is a boon to the credit union system. We don’t have the money that some of our adversaries have. If it is fully transparent,” Mica said, “we’ll go toe to toe with anybody.” Roll Call is a widely read publication covering Capitol Hill.
