“As a presidential nominee, you are asked not to speak to the media,” Decker said, and that made it difficult when questions about her credit union's performance came up.
Decker still declined to comment on the 2010 exam report, noting her credit union's policy of not speaking about confidential documents, even those which had been made public. But she commented on her credit union's performance, noting that during that period the CU had already made strategic decisions to launch a couple of projects, in particular to build a new branch and to switch to a new data processing system, that it knew would be expensive in the short run but it believed would serve members in the longer run.
