Credit Unions Back Bonamici at Rally

Credit union support was apparent when Congressional candidate Suzanne Bonamici rallied to reach out to voters Monday, Jan. 16. Hundreds of volunteers turned out to knock on doors and make phone calls to voters with just 15 days remaining until ballots are due. Northwest credit unions have contributed funds and time to the Bonamici campaign. Joining the Northwest Credit Union Association’s (NWCUA) Jennifer Wagner and Lynn Heider Monday were Andrew Ackman from USAgencies Credit Union and Terry Bernhardt, a member of the Rivermark Community Credit Union board of directors.

Bonamici is vying to fill the House seat vacated by the resignation of Rep. David Wu, D-Ore, having already won a special November primary. She squares off with Republican businessman Rob Cornilles in a general election on Jan. 31, 2012. The NWCUA announced its support of Bonamici in October.
