Despite many questions surrounding the legislative maps at both the state and congressional level, the League recognizes the need to connect with candidates as early as possible in the process in order to begin building strong relationships is a critical component to a successful advocacy effort. That is why the League and credit unions across the state have recently been looking to connect with candidates at all levels of government.

  • Superior Credit Union and the League recently met with Jacob Larger, who is running for the Ohio House of Representatives. Mr. Larger, a member at the credit union, wanted to learn more about the industry and key issues impacting your day-to-day operations.
  • With a very contentious Republican U.S. Senate primary, the League has been in touch with the Mike Gibbons campaign to set up a dialogue to gauge his knowledge and familiarity with credit unions, given Mr. Gibbons status as a frontrunner in the race.
  • Finally, one of those early connections that has proven to be successful was State Rep. Susan Manchester (R-Waynesfield). Rep. Manchester has been a credit union champion since her election to the Ohio House and, with a tough primary on her hands, the League recently supported her at an in-district event.

If you have a personal relationship with a candidate running for state office, we would love to connect them as soon as possible. Please feel free to reach out to Sr. Manager of Political and Grassroots Affairs, Andrew Canan, to make that connection or if you have any questions.
