Ask an Island Savings employee

Duncan – In the time since our member information packages were mailed out, I have read letters to the editor that have cast doubt on our leadership, and our future as a community minded credit union.

As an employee who fully supports this merger, I have found myself frustrated with these letters and the negative impact they create.

It has taken me some time to respond as I have struggled with what to write.

What I have gathered from these passionate responses is that our members care about our credit union, and for that I am thankful.

Having said that, change is coming regardless of which way this vote goes, and this merger is our opportunity to choose what that change looks like. Among many other positives, a “yes” vote enables us to keep our values, our people, and our local decision making.

If you are having doubts about this merger and were unable to attend a town hall meeting, I ask that you take that concern a step farther than the editorial page… Please come in to the branch and talk to an employee. Ask us what we think. Share your concerns. Let’s see if we can address them together.

As a member of Island Savings, and an employee of almost five years, I will be voting “yes”.

Amy Webb
