“We appreciate Senator Warner’s long time recognition of our credit unions as responsible local lenders.”

As a member and chairman of the Virginia Credit Union League, I am pleased to share our support for Senator Mark Warner in his re-election to the United States Senate.

Our economy has been hit hard in recent years, putting additional burdens on our local communities. As the CEO of Hampton Roads Educators’ Credit Union in Hampton, I have seen first hand the struggles that our members have gone through. However, I am thankful that we have such a strong supporter in the United State Senate as Senator Mark Warner.

As a businessman for many years, Senator Warner understands the value of advocating for Virginia credit unions and our millions of members. His work on the Senate Banking Committee has been incredibly instrumental in reforming our financial services industry in order to bring economic stability back to our local communities.

Senator Warner has helped to advance commonsense, bipartisan solutions that support small business lending. In 2010, he advocated for a more systematic and balanced approach to banking and credit union regulations so that we could begin to capitalize on our economy’s recovery.

I am grateful that throughout his time in the Senate, Senator Warner has continued to work across the aisle to reduce unnecessary and burdensome regulations for small institutions and continues to bring forward financial reforms that will strengthen our housing and financial services industries.

We appreciate Senator Warner’s long time recognition of our credit unions as responsible local lenders. As just one of many members of the Virginia Credit Union League, I look forward to continuing to partner with Mark Warner in order to strengthen and grow our local economies and communities.
