President’s Point

I want to give a shout-out to some folks I depend on very much. They provide a valuable service to me and my family. These individuals visit my house every week like clockwork. I’m not sure what I’d do without them. 

These are the town employees who haul away our trash and recyclables every Thursday morning. As an average citizen, it could be easy to take such services for granted. After all, I’m not usually home when my garbage is emptied. I just know when I return, it’s gone. 

I am reminded that living in a community takes the dedication and hard work of local government professionals. When we turn on the faucet, we have local government employees to thank for safe and reliable water. We take comfort knowing fire and police protection is only a phone call away. Library services, parks and social services are there when we need them. 

In North Carolina, we have a choice of communities to call home. If big-city living is your thing, we have robust, thriving municipalities throughout the state. If you like a small-town feel, we have many delightful neighborhoods. If you prefer a rural, country setting, you can’t beat the North Carolina landscape. No matter where you live, dedicated local government people help make your life better. 

LGFCU members are involved in all levels of government from city hall to street maintenance. We take pride in knowing our members are the folks making our hometown communities work. 

I am proud to work for a Credit Union that serves our local government employees, elected officials and volunteers. We want our services to you to be as dependable as the service you provide to all residents. 

I think all North Carolinians should salute our local government folks. The next time you go to the library, see a firefighter, or happen upon a police officer, thank them personally for all they do for all of us.
