Political veteran Jennifer Wagner is the new director of credit union advocacy for the Credit Union Association of Oregon. She will play a strategic role in CUAO’s governmental affairs department and will oversee CUAO’s grassroots advocacy efforts, which include the CU advocate program, CULAC fundraising and other legislative outreach initiatives. Wagner has worked as a field representative and legislative assistant for several federal and state legislators from Oregon, including Congressman Kurt Schrader and former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (both D-Ore.). She was also the campaign manager for State Rep. Greg Macpherson. “Jennifer’s background makes her especially suited for this position, and we are excited to have her join the CUAO team to take our advocacy programs to the next level,” said Pamela Leavitt, senior vice president of governmental affairs and public relations. Wagner replaces Kasey Rockwell, who has recently transitioned into a new role as CUAO’s director of credit union development.
