Today in Florida, LSCU endorsed candidate Alex Sink (Democrat) faces David Jolly (Republican) to replace the late Congressman Bill Young in the Congressional District 13 special election. Congressional District 13 consists of Pinellas County.
Sink was formally endorsed by the League in early February. Since her days as Florida's chief financial officer, she has fostered a solid working relationship with credit unions. Sink 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.
