Did you see last week's announcement?

Last week our leadership team announced our endorsement of Rep. Andy Barr, a champion of traditional banking who we need to help keep on the House Financial Services Committee.
Knowing that his House race is so important and so close that it is THE ONLY ONE WE'LL ENDORSE THIS YEAR, Barr is appreciative of the thousands of friends around the country who will chip in to help him win his neck and neck race for reelection.
Representative Barr sends his appreciation
"I am truly honored to receive the endorsement of Friends of Traditional Banking and I applaud their work and effective advocacy on behalf of America's community banks and their customers.  

"Since I was first elected to Congress, I have long fought to reduce the regulatory burdens on community banks so that families, entrepreneurs and businesses can access the capital they need to invest in their futures, create jobs, and continue to grow our economy.  

"With the persistent support of Friends of Traditional Banking, I was able to pass my bill, the Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act, and was proud to work to include this important legislation in the recently enacted Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, which is the most pro-growth, financial regulatory relief legislation in a generation.  

While I am proud of the work we have accomplished in this Congress, there is much more work to be done. That's why I greatly appreciate this endorsement so that I can continue to be a strong voice and outspoken advocate for community banks and their customers."

Did you see the video promoting Sen. Jon Tester that the ABA made?
Friends of Traditional Banking is proud to endorse two candidates this year--a House Republican (Barr), and a Senate Democrat (Tester). Both have been friends of our industry, and this video made by the American Bankers Association shows how Senator Tester stepped up to help us:

Friends of Traditional Banking is a non-partisan grassroots effort organized by bankers in 2012 to improve the political and regulatory environment for the traditional banking industry in the U.S. FOTB is the inverse of a PAC--instead of spreading a little bit of money to a lot of campaigns, they focus a lot of money on a couple of key campaigns.
