League and credit unions support legislative champions

Establishing and maintaining relationships with Movement legislative champions is critical for policy success. This is particularly true when it comes time for them to run for re-election. That is why the League and Ohio credit union leaders recently supported three credit union champions ahead of November’s election.

  • Last week, the League joined area credit unions for a great evening in support of Congressman Steve Chabot (R-Cincinnati). During his nearly two decades in Congress, Congressman Chabot has served as a critical voice for credit union priorities, including during his tenure as Chairman of the House Small Business Committee. With a tough re-election on his hands, we wanted to ensure credit unions once again had his back, just as he has had ours over the years.
  • House Judiciary Committee leader, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Urbana), held his annual outing earlier this week and the League provided support alongside Superior Credit Union. With political pundits predicting a republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives next year, Congressman Jordan will serve as an influential voice in the chamber and will serve as a strong Movement advocate.
  • Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Howland) connected with Northeast Ohio credit unions at 7 17 Credit Union to discuss his U.S. Senate candidacy. A longtime supporter of credit union priorities, Congressman Ryan remains a proven Movement champion and the communities they serve.
