WCCU Credit Union
contributed….Madison…State Representative Ed Brooks (R-Reedsburg) was presented with the “Friend of Cooperatives” award today at WCCU Credit Union, Reedsburg. Noting Representative Brooks has been a consistent champion for cooperatives and rural interests throughout his adult life and since being elected to the State Assembly in 2008, Bill Oemichen president and CEO of Cooperative Network presented the award to Brooks before a group of credit union member employees. Oemichen said Representative Brooks was a major advocate for Cooperative Network members on several pieces of legislation but he stood up for credit unions during the biennial budget discussion on an unfriendly amendment.
“Cooperatives have been an important part of my life and work I am thankful to receive this award, Brooks said I look forward to working on behalf of cooperative members during the next legislative session”.
Cooperative Network is the statewide trade association for cooperatives in Wisconsin and Minnesota and serves more than 600 member-cooperatives, owned by more than 6.1 million Minnesota and Wisconsin residents.
