Once again in 2022, Minnesota Credit Unions have remained highly visible related to election coverage and dialogue across the state.
The Minnesota Credit Union Network has been highly engaged in meeting with candidates for office, talking with legislative leaders in both parties and generally working to ensure that, whatever the partisan makeup of the state legislature looks like next year, credit unions will continue to enjoy strong support for our issues.
“Our election activities did not just start this week or this month but last year,” MnCUN Chief Advocacy and Engagement Officer Mara Humphrey said. “The Political Involvement Committee approved a thorough election plan in December of 2021 that included candidate communication, political contributions to both individual candidates and party caucuses and a candidate survey to be distributed to all credit union staff and GREAT advocates. It's a comprehensive strategy to help ensure that credit unions are ideally placed to enact our legislative agenda at the state Capitol for the 2023-24 session.”
