Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif.
A former Arrowhead Credit Union employee and newly elected representative, Aguilar declared he’s “one of you” and is a lifelong credit union supporter and champion in Congress.
Sharing lessons he has learned, Aguilar told attendees that if they make decisions with their communities in mind, things will fall in place. He noted the need to find the balance between too much regulation and safe and sound operations. Aguilar is “happy to co-sponsor important bills related to supplemental capital and raising the member business lending cap,” and continues to work on legislative priorities that will keep credit unions healthy.
