Senator Don Benton Honored

Senator Benton has represented Washington’s 17 District since 1997 and served in the House for several years prior.

“This honor is given to elected officials who have demonstrated their dedication to the people of Washington, through their support of credit unions. It is clear that Sen. Benton has been and continues to be a true credit union champion,” said Troy Stang, President and CEO of the Northwest Credit Union Association.

“You tell me another organization in the community that provides so many services and so many wonderful things outside of the financial services, and you do it all for members–not for profit, not taking any profit from the community,” said Benton.  “I don’t know of any other organization that does that. It’s a unique system and I’m so proud to have helped it along.”
