Sandoval in Re-Election This Year
Nevada credit union leaders recently met with Gov. Brian Sandoval in Las Vegas and discussed improvements to the state’s economy, as well as how credit unions are working in their respective communities to assist members.
The governor talked about the small business climate across the state, and how the credit union movement can work together with their communities and the state to move Nevada forward. The conversation was highlighted by a look at recently released unemployment statistics for the state.
On that note, CEOs took the opportunity to report the positive growth recently experienced at their individual credit unions.
Sandoval is running for re-election this year against a crowded field of candidates. The governor faces four opponents in the June 10 GOP primary.
Seven democratic candidates have also filed to run, along with an Independent American Party candidate and a Green Party candidate.

The Federal Reserve’s ultra-low interest rate policy created the desired impact when it was instituted in 2008. Short-term funding costs plunged for financial institutions, allowing them to cheaply fund higher-yielding assets and restore capital.
