... finally being "called out"?
To: Leigh Brady and SECU Board
October 21, 2023
My name is Susie Ford and I was speaker number 3 at our Annual Meeting 2023. You might recall my Grandfather, Dr. Joseph C. Knox was passbook number 7 and one of OUR founding members of SECU. I can assure you each of my comments were my own words spoken from a heart which is breaking at the performance and changes of OUR Credit Union over the last 2 years.
I am offended at the implication that a 63 year old female could be a puppet for anyone! The words were my own, citing ways OUR Credit Union helped its members while I was an employee. Members who were hurting and struggling and turned to US (SECU) for help. With tiered based lending, the new teacher with zero credit would not have been granted a loan, the gentleman with too much credit card debt would not have been able to consolidate, I do not support this change in OUR Credit Union as it is unfair to the very people OUR Credit Union was created to help. I appreciate the platform of the Annual Meeting to share my thoughts. After all, it is MY Credit Union.
I believe in progress, improvements and want nothing more than OUR Credit Union to succeed and once again fairly assist ALL our members in need. I urge you to look within yourself and DO THE RIGHT THING for OUR members.

The SECU Board is "DOA" (Duck on Arrival) on this snafu... count on many more "strikes" from the members (@ 28) to follow, all of whom spoke independently at the SECU Annual Meeting. The SECU Board is 1) legally a sitting duck, 2) tenure-wise a lame duck and 3) ethically a dead duck if they don't respond to the CUToday apocalypse article - now! [link to post and article] .
Time for SECU Board to step up to the plate...
