ALEXANDRIA, Va.-Four more names have emerged recently in the race to name a successor to NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar’s seat. Wescom Credit Union Vice President for Real Estate Tom Orman’s name has been floated as a potential candidate, as has SSA Baltimore Federal Credit Union CEO Jack Houseknecht. Former Robins Federal Credit Union CEO Buck Levins has also been suggested from among the credit union community and Walter Furnace of American Airlines Federal Credit Union. Furnace has the only record of holding political office, a source familiar with the proceedings pointed out, having previously served as a Republican state legislator in Alaska. The White House Office of Personnel is aiming to have one name to the president’s desk by the middle of the month, according to the source. However, the source added these deadlines have come and gone over the last 11 months. Dollar’s term expired last April and he has told the administration he will serve at least through the first quarter of 2004, which is quickly approaching. Former Federal Housing Finance Board Member J. Timothy O’Neill, Missouri Credit Union Association CEO Rosie Holub, and Texas Credit Union League Vice President of Staff and Public Relations Troy Stang are also still in the running according to the source.
