HARRISBURG, Pa. (8/28/15)--When someone’s interested in financial literacy, there’s perhaps no place better to look than the credit union movement.
And that’s exactly what newly minted Pennsylvania Treasurer Timothy Reese did this week. He met with Patrick Conway, Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) president/CEO, and Christina Mihalik, PCUA vice president of government relations, at the Capitol in Harrisburg (Life is a Highway Aug. 27).
Reese is a strong advocate for financial education, and Conway and Mihalik used the opportunity to discuss credit union financial literacy efforts, in addition to initiatives centered on small businesses.
“Credit unions and Treasurer Reese share like-minded interests, including financial education for individuals and small businesses,” Conway said. “We look forward to working with the Treasury Department to explore how credit unions can provide assistance in these areas.”
Reese was confirmed in June after being nominated by Gov. Tom Wolf to finish out the remaining term of former state Treasurer Rob McCord.
