At a meeting with Missouri credit union representatives, Governor Jay Nixon (D) recognized the important role credit unions play in Missouri’s economic and financial landscape.
“I appreciate the services that credit unions provide to more than 1.3 million people in Missouri and that there is a robust credit union system in our state that is second to none,” stated Nixon.
Governor Nixon met with dozens of Missouri credit union representatives at Missouri Credit Union House in Jefferson City on July 24. After his remarks, Nixon welcomed questions from the group. Missouri Credit Union Association President/CEO Mike Beall asked Nixon how credit unions could help grow the economy and business development in the state, and the governor emphasized the importance of credit unions’ financial education efforts.
“Fiscal literacy is important, and teaching people this cannot be overstated,” said Nixon. “It doesn’t help us create jobs and improve the economy if people get overextended.”

Anheuser-Busch Employees’ Credit Union
