CONGRESSMAN ENGAGES WITH CU MEMBERS
updated 09/04/13 10:39 AM
Emerges as Strong CU Supporter
Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA, recently hosted a "Congress on Your Corner" event at UNCLE CU in Livermore, CA, which allowed the congressman an opportunity to meet credit union members who were interested in services that his offices provide.
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.
