FCUA backs Alex Sink for Congressional District 13

The Florida Credit Union Association (FCUA), an affiliate of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates (LSCU), board of directors announced its endorsement of Democrat Alex Sink for Florida’s Congressional District 13 in the March 11 Special Election. This is the seat formerly held by Rep. Bill Young (R) who passed away in October of 2013.

Since her days as Florida’s chief financial officer, Sink has fostered a solid working relationship with credit unions. She has made numerous visits to meet with credit union CEOs during her career. She has also spoken at LSCU events and met with the League’s governmental affairs staff to gain a greater understanding of credit union issues. Sink’s longtime support of the credit union industry, along with her expertise in the financial services industry, makes her an ideal candidate for credit unions.

The special election for Congressional District 13 will be March 11 and the winner will serve the rest of Rep. Young’s term.
