Reps. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.) and Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) have both seen their districts hit hard by the pandemic, and both have seen credit unions in action as financial first responders working to help their communities recover. Murphy and Reed appeared together in a video discussing ways credit unions help their communities, and why it’s important to come together across the aisle to support legislators that champion credit unions.
Murphy praised credit unions for being the “first place people turn to for help and guidance” as the economic effects of the pandemic struck.
Reed thanked credit unions for “leading the way” when it comes to helping small businesses, including through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), helping keep people employed.
Both legislators touted the importance of working together in a bipartisan fashion on behalf of Americans and talked about the importance of credit unions heading to the ballot to support candidates that support the credit union mission.
