NEVADA CU LEADERS MEET WITH GOVERNOR
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.
L-R: Andy Hunter, CEO of Silver State Schools CU; Rick Schmidt, CEO of WestStar CU; Eric Estes, CEO of Boulder Dam CU; Sue Longson, former VP of Business Development and Community Relations for SCE FCU and CEO of SONEPCO FCU; Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval; Wayne Tew, CEO of Clark County CU and Chairman of the Nevada Credit Union League; Wally Murray, CEO of Greater Nevada CU; and Melissa Ameluxen, VP of State Government Affairs for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues
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.
