SECU Board - Employee Intimidation and Coercion - Shame on You # 2

 To: SECU Board of Directors

Dear Chairman Ayers,

Really hate to be rude, but I never believed that you, Mr. Ayers and the SECU Board would stoop this low.  To permit the Chief Executive Officer (COO) of SECU to pressure and intimidate the SECU staff with the memo below crosses all boundaries of ethics and justice.

Really not much left to say to you, Mr. Ayers, other than shame on you, shame on you, shame on you - and also to each member of the SECU Board who has encouraged this new culture at SECU.

FROM Ms. Leigh Brady, COO - Friday, February 24, 2023:

"Good morning and happy Friday!

Our Board has received numerous letters from team members across the state supporting our movement forward with tier based lending. I'd love to have our admin@ box flooded with similar emails of support for the Board. Feel free to invite your team members to email their messages of support. Please have them direct those emails to

Thanks all-


Leigh Brady, CUDE (she/her/hers)

  1. Shame doesn’t even begin to describe how this leadership should feel.

  2. Leigh Brady is a joke.

  3. Ms. Brady exemplifies the "new ethics" here at the credit union. She/her/hers ain't much. It's just about the $$$'s.

    1. Truer words have never been spoken.

  4. Hope you're moderating these comments because COO Brady will probably ask us to flood your box
