PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (7/27/15)--U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-Maine) visited The County FCU’s Presque Isle office July 17, the Maine Credit Union League reported.
Poliquin serves on the House Financial Services Committee, which provides oversight to America’s financial services sector (Weekly Update July 24).
“Maine’s credit unions certainly appreciate Congressman Poliquin taking the time to visit credit unions and hear first-hand the challenges credit unions face day in and day out serving the financial service needs of members in today’s over regulated financial services environment,” said John Murphy, Maine Credit Union League president. “Although the Congressman had hoped to visit with other credit unions in the county that day scheduling demands prevented him from doing so but he very much looks forward to visit with other credit unions in the district throughout the year.”
Ryan Ellsworth, president/CEO of The County FCU, Caribou, Maine, reported that Poliquin visited the credit union while touring the area for the Fort Fairfield Potato Blossom Festival. “He asked questions and showed concern for the issues facing credit unions today along with the economy in Aroostook County,” Ellsworth said.
