|L-R: Harold Roundtree, CEO of UNCLE CU; Chung Bothwell, Board Chairman of UNCLE CU; Lecia Roundtree; Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA; and Rick Hanan, CEO of SMW 104 FCU|
Swalwell represents California's 15th Congressional District and is in his first term representing the area.
UNCLE CU CEO Harold Roundtree offered hosting space to the congressman, since several members were expected to stop by and use the credit union over the holiday weekend.
Having served in office only eight months, Swalwell has quickly emerged as a true friend of credit unions. He has co-sponsored H.R. 688, legislation to raise the member business lending cap, and has taken a strong stance in support of credit unions' tax-exempt status.
Other credit unions interested in hosting a similar event should contact Jeremy Empol, vice president of federal government affairs for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Political Action Committees are organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates, with most PACs representing business, labor or ideological interests.
