“We are incredibly proud to support this bipartisan list of candidates in their bids for re-election. These members have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to standing up for Florida credit unions and our priorities,” stated LSCU & Affiliates CEO, Patrick La Pine. “As credit unions continue to invest in their members and local communities, we look forward to working alongside these officials to further enhance the financial well-being of Floridians. Throughout the pandemic, it became especially apparent just how vital the relationships between credit unions and federal offices are. In the last two years, we proudly worked with Congress to save more than 100,000 jobs through Paycheck Protection Program loans and protect small businesses through the issuance of loans of all sizes. Through continued efforts, credit unions contributed more than $9.3 billion to Florida’s economy to ensure families and businesses across the state had the resources and assistance they needed to get through the pandemic. We look forward to strengthening our relationships with these officials in 2023 and beyond, so that we may continue creating a financial environment where all Floridians can succeed.”
