LSCU Honors Alabama Senator Chris Elliott as 2022 State Lawmaker of the Year

TALLAHASSEE, FL (April 5, 2023) — In December of 2022, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) Board of Directors met to approve strategic plans for 2023 and discuss a number of other business items, including the 2022 lawmakers of the year. During the nomination and approval process, legislator’s contributions to, and support for, credit unions were discussed at length.

The Alabama Advocacy Policy Committee voted to nominate Senator Chris Elliott (R-32) as the 2022 State Lawmaker of the Year, which was later approved by the LSCU Board of Directors.

“I am thrilled to be named the 2022 State Lawmaker of the Year in Alabama by LSCU,” said Senator Elliott. “I have been a supporter of credit unions for years and often take the time to speak with Alabamians to discuss issues facing these financial institutions. In my elected Senate position, I am prepared to stand up for credit unions and ensure that proper legislation is executed.”

Senator Elliott formerly served as the Chairman of the Baldwin County Commission and the Chairman of the Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization, as well as on various national, statewide, and countywide boards and committees. In these roles, Senator Elliott was able to make a tremendous impact for the constituents of Alabama.

“Senator Elliott has been a strong advocate for credit unions since day one of joining the state legislature and we are grateful for his steadfast leadership,” noted Patrick La Pine, CEO of LSCU & Affiliates. “He has championed credit union legislation in the past, and we look forward to our continued work together to ensure financial well-being for all Alabamians.”

Senator Elliott remains accessible to Alabama’s credit unions and LSCU appreciates his commitment to serving the state.
