Don Johnson – incumbent
I am once again seeking your vote to serve as one of the Granite Credit Union Directors. In my more than thirty years of service on the Supervisory Committee and Board of Directors I have attended numerous educational conferences and gained a great deal of experience that will benefit Granite Credit Union and you as its members. I have served in every office of the Board of Directors as well as on various committees, some of them more than once. I also served many years as an officer and member of the Board of the Valley West Rotary Club and West Valley Chamber of Commerce, gaining valuable experience that I will use to help your credit union reach its service goals. I have been a CPA for over thirty years, as well as a teacher in public school and college, gaining experience and knowledge that makes me a good choice to serve you on the Board of Directors for another three years.
Thank you for considering me for this important position.
Ben Ungricht – incumbent
I have decided to run again for one of the openings on the Board of Directors. I feel that with my 19 years of combined experience as a board member, I will be able to represent your concerns and interest as a member of Granite Credit Union. My education, a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, gives me additional experience that will enable me to oversee and direct the affairs of the credit union. I joined Granite Credit Union when I was in high school. When I joined the Credit Union I wanted to be affiliated with the credit union movement. As I have volunteered at the Granite Credit Union through the years I have become more convinced that credit unions play a crucial role in our nation’s banking system. Credit Unions are the place where individuals and families feel welcomed. The needs of the members are the first and foremost concern of the Board Members and the management of Granite Credit Union. I know that my allegiance is to the members, and not to stockholders.
I would appreciate your continued support and confidence.
