WORCESTER, Mass. – The Massachusetts Credit Union League today endorsed Elizabeth Warren in the United States Senate race in Massachusetts, saying that she will be a strong advocate to promote a level playing field for credit unions.
"Elizabeth Warren has been a strong and vocal proponent of the benefits that credit unions provide to working families across the Commonwealth and around the country," said Daniel F. Egan, Jr., president of the Massachusetts Credit Union League. "It is our hope and expectation that Elizabeth will be a United States Senator who will ensure that credit unions and their members have an advocate in the Senate because the big banks in this country already have enough of them."
The Massachusetts Credit Union League is the oldest continually operating credit union trade group in the United States. It achieves its mission -- "To Preserve, Promote, and Protect Credit Unions" -- through its public, legislative, and regulatory advocacy. There are over 200 credit unions in Massachusetts with over 2.5 million members.
"I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Massachusetts Credit Union League. Credit unions have played a crucial role in the development of the middle class, both across America and within Massachusetts," Warren said. "The League and the credit unions that compose it provide valuable services to their communities and to their members. Credit unions exist not to boost their own revenues, but to serve their members. It is critically important to support credit unions and the hard-working Americans who rely on their services."
