Because we depend on elected officials to both advance and protect the credit union movement, the League strongly believes in recognizing candidates running for office—regardless of their political party—who share our values, have strong credit union connections, and have demonstrated a willingness to advocate on our behalf. Therefore, the League makes campaign endorsements during each election cycle to candidates that meet our endorsement policy/criteria.
Maine State Legislature
At a special meeting of the League’s Board of Directors on September 7, the Board voted unanimously to accept the proposed recommendations of the Governmental Affairs Committee to endorse 91 candidates running for the state legislature. While the League is only making endorsements in 91 state races, 186 seats are up for election—151 in the Maine House and 35 in the Maine Senate.
