2014 Elections

As the 2014 elections near, it can be difficult, at times, to cut through the clutter. More than 1.6 million Minnesotans are members of our state’s credit unions. As owners of their not-for-profit financial institutions, many credit union members want to know where candidates stand on the issues that are important to credit unions.

This summer the Minnesota Credit Union Network contacted every individual aspiring to represent Minnesota in Congress and the state House of Representatives. Each candidate received an informative eight-question survey.

The results of those surveys are included the 2014 Voter Guide.
