Georgia Credit Unions Support Governor Brian P. Kemp

Georgia Credit Unions traveled from around the state to meet with Governor Brian P. Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp this week to support Governor Kemp’s re-election campaign. With a $6B budget surplus, Georgia is fiscally sound under the leadership of Governor Kemp. Credit unions were so thrilled to see financial literacy legislation pass with the support of Governor Kemp, as financial wellness for all is a pillar of credit union member service. Governor Kemp has a demonstrated history of understanding small business principles and the importance of community-based financial institutions. As such, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates (LSCU & Affiliates) is thrilled to support his re-election campaign for a second term as Governor of Georgia.

LSCU’s Sydney Seral, Vice President of Advocacy, and Grace Newcombe, Senior Director of Federal Advocacy & Communications, were delighted to be joined by Stephen Smith, President/CEO of Family First Credit Union, Robin Ralls, Deputy General Counsel at Delta Community Credit Union, LSCU Board Director and President/CEO of LGE Community Credit Union Chris Leggett, Denise O’Connell, Board Secretary of LGE Community Credit Union, Cindy Connelly, SVP of Government Affairs at Georgia United Credit Union, Brian Albrecht, President/CEO of Credit Union of Georgia, Kathy Day, Chief Operating Officer of Credit Union of Georgia, Chad Evans, Chief Lending Officer of Associated Credit Union, Tim Bridges, CFO of Associated Credit Union, Brandee Bickle, Vice President of Government Affairs & Specialty Projects at Georgia’s Own Credit Union, Caric Martin of Georgia’s Own Credit Union, LSCU Board Director and President/CEO of North Georgia Credit Union Brian Akin, and Jonathan Curtis, Executive Vice President of Technology Solutions and Business at United Methodist Connectional Federal Credit Union.
