CAMBRIDGE, CIRCLE PINES, COLUMBIA HEIGHTS and COON RAPIDS, Minn. – Four Minnesota credit unions are pooling their resources to publish a quarterly newsletter for 75 area legislators, specific committee members and the Governor, with articles about the credit union difference and what credit unions are doing to make their communities better. Anoka County FCU, Anoka Hennepin CU, First Community CU and Minnco CU last week published their first issue of “Credit Union Focus.” The newsletter contains a feature article on each credit union, highlighting some of the major contributions they make in their local communities. The stories also incorporate basic information on CUs and the credit union difference. The March 2006 newsletter informs legislators that CUs are a “financial alternative to big banking” and that credit unions strive “to make the communities we live in a better place.” Anoka County FCU’s Retail Services Manager Matt Lasiuta said, “It’s important for government officials, as well as the general public, to know what credit unions are about and to see some of the good that we do. The newsletter is able to provide that information first hand. The more information we can get to our legislators, the better.”
