Maine Credit Union League Endorses Senator Susan Collins

The Maine Credit Union League has endorsed U.S. Senator Susan Collins’ bid for re-election. The League cites Collins’ hard work, her support of Maine’s credit unions, the laws she’s written to protect seniors against fraud, and her role in creating the Paycheck Protection Program as factors in its endorsement decision.

In an endorsement letter to Senator Collins, League President/CEO Todd Mason states:

“The League greatly appreciates your long and consistent support of Maine credit unions and our more than 720,000 credit union members across the state. You are an unwavering supporter and have always taken the time to consider the viewpoints of the League and our member credit unions.

You have taken a lead on many issues that credit unions care deeply about, including, sponsoring and enacting into law the Senior$afe legislation, which has helped protect seniors against financial fraud and exploitation. Your remarkable work in creating the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) has been an essential tool to combat the difficult and challenging economic times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We deeply value your approach to working with your congressional colleagues to achieve important policy goals. Without question Maine has benefited tremendously from your unparalleled hard work and dedication.”

In reaction to the endorsement, Senator Collins said:

“I am so grateful to have the support of the members of the Maine Credit Union League, who play such a pivotal role in our economy. Together, we have worked to create jobs for hard-working Mainers and to protect our seniors from financial fraud.”
