November 4 is election day, and one of the hottest races for credit unions in California is in Congressional District 31. Pete Aguilar, a former Arrowhead CU employee, tops the Leagues’ priority list of must-win races. The Leagues’ federal Political Action Committee (PAC) contributed to an independent expenditure in support of Aguilar, something the Leagues could never have accomplished without generous contributions to PAC by credit union professionals.
Political Action Committees are organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates, representing business, labor or ideological interests.
