DENVER-The Colorado Credit Union League said a fund-raising reception Oct. 28 for Democratic Congressional candidate Mike Feeley in a hotly contested Nov. 5 race drew an additional $10,000 but the contest with Feeley’s GOP opponent, Bob Beauprez, a Lewisville banker, is still “neck and neck.” The League said its PAC already raised $10,000 for Feeley, considered a strong credit union supporter, and that the additional funds came in from individual contributions at the fundraiser held in a Westminster home. The Feeley-Beauprez fight over the new 7th District Congressional seat last week turned into a public discussion over the role credit unions play in the economy and bankruptcy reform versus bank competition in connection with a news conference led by former CUNA Chairman Dave Maus, who also is president of Public Service Credit Union of Denver. Maus, called in by the League to help in the Feeley cause, accused Beuaprez of being a “political power boss” playing to the interest of banks. Earlier this week Beauprez called the Colorado League office to question the reasons behind the CU attack on his record claiming he does indeed support CUs. The League has maintained that Beauprez as head of the Republican Party in Colorado, CEO of Heritage Bank of Lewisville and also a past president of the Independent Bankers of Colorado, worked hard to defeat a bill in the state legislature this year to allow CUs to accept public funds and against formation of a CU-run trust company.
