WASHINGTON — New York State Credit Union League Vice President of Governmental Affairs Amy Kramer spent Jan. 4 running the marble halls of Congress. Kramer visited with nearly every New York representative. “Both members and their staff were in festive moods with many offices holding open houses for friends and family following taking their oath of office,” she said. “It was also the perfect time to start spreading the credit union word to New York’s newly elected.” During her visits, Kramer supplied staff information on credit unions, a list of the credit unions in their districts, as well as project zip code numbers for their areas. She said the highlights of her visits were meeting with two of New York’s freshman representatives, Michael Arcuri (D) and Kristen Gillibrand (D). Just the day before, Kramer was present to hear newly elected Governor Eliot Spitzer’s (D) State of the State address. “The League looks forward to working with Governor Spitzer. Both he and Lieutenant Governor David Patterson (D) come to their new offices as supporters of credit unions. His plan to keep costs and taxes down for citizens and to stimulate economic development should bode well for New York’s credit unions and their members.” Bethpage Federal Credit Union President/CEO Kirk Kordeleski, Executive Vice President Wayne Grosse and Vice President, Corporate Development & Government Affairs Coordinator Linda Armyn also attended the Albany event.
