LYNCHBURG, Va.– The Virginia Credit Union League's Director of Public Relations and Communications Lewis Wood informed Credit Union Times today that Reggie Jones will not be lobbying on its behalf during the 2008 General Assembly.

Jones, with the firm Williams Mullen, will continue only as the VCUL's retained counsel, Wood said. The League's own internal lobbying team will represent CU interests, he said.
