The Credit Union Movement has the opportunity to elect a lifelong credit union advocate during the Nov. 6 General Election. Larry Hoff, former CEO and President of Fibre Federal Credit Union, is running for Washington state’s 18th Legislative District, a seat being vacated by incumbent Rep. Liz Pike, a Republican.

Credit Union advocates are needed to go door-to-door — introducing Hoff to the voters and encouraging them to learn more about him and his policies.

After serving for 15 years as CEO and President of Fibre Federal Credit Union, he realized his commitment to helping the middle class and small businesses was not over. Answering the call to service once again, Hoff is running as the Republican candidate and will face Democrat Kathy Gillespie in the General Election.

Those interested in volunteering are invited to a campaign kickoff gathering Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Clark County Square Dance Center, 10713 NE 117th Ave., in Vancouver, Wash. Materials about his campaign will be distributed so that volunteers may go door-to-door canvassing the district, creating awareness about what Hoff stands for, inspiring voters to cast their vote for Hoff, and mail their ballots early. It’s a great way to help him win the election while supporting the Credit Union Movement.

“Larry Hoff has served individuals and small businesses throughout his career,” said Troy Stang, CEO and President of the Northwest Credit Union Association. “We have a tremendous opportunity to bring a strong credit union advocate to Olympia. Those who believe in and support the movement are encouraged to participate.”

Hoff feels that individuals and small businesses are at the heart of the nation’s economic engine and his goal is to advocate for them in his district, which encompasses Clark County. Ridgefield, Battle Ground, Camas, Washougal, Vancouver, La Center, and Yacolt, Wash., fall within the district. Hoff has lived in the district for more than 40 years.

In 2016, the Northwest Credit Union Association recognized his efforts by awarding him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Since 1990, Hoff has been active with Credit Unions for Kids, the charity of choice for credit unions across the country that benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. He’s also served on the board of directors at the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and co-founded a number of charity events that, together with numerous other efforts, brought in over $8 million for children in need at Doernbecher.

To RSVP for the event on Sept. 8 or if you are interested in volunteering for the campaign, contact Gretchan Blum, NWCUA Grassroots Advocacy Manager, by emailing To learn more about Hoff, visit his campaign bio.
