Councilmember Mike O'Brien and family participate in National Bank Transfer Day


Seattle - Councilmember Mike O'Brien and his family will participate in National Bank Transfer Day and he encourages other city residents to do the same. The O'Brien family joins more than 650,000 Americans in transferring their bank accounts to local banks or credit unions.

Said Councilmember O'Brien about National Bank Transfer Day: "I got sick of all the fees and hassle of the big banks, making life difficult for customers while reaping record profits. My family and I are excited to be members of a credit union founded here in Washington. I believe City Council should also take a look at where the City puts its money and makes its investments. Hopefully, the resolution we are introducing on Monday will help start that conversation."

Who:
Councilmember Mike O'Brien and his family

What:
Making deposits into their new accounts, answering questions

When:
10:00 a.m., as the credit union opens

Where:
Verity Credit Union Wallingford branch
