STANTON , Neb. (AP) — A former northeastern Nebraska village clerk who was praised for her work in helping rebuild her community following a 2014 tornado strike has been sentenced to prison for stealing from the village. The Norfolk Daily News reports that 58-year-old Kimberly Neiman was sentenced Monday to three years in prison. The former Pilger clerk was arrested last year on multiple felony counts. In a deal with prosecutors, she pleaded guilty in November to one count of attempted theft in exchange for all other counts being dropped. Neiman was fired by the village board in February 2019, following a state audit that found more than $562,000 in questionable transactions and more than $156,000 in suspicious charges on the village’s credit card.
Members of CUNA’s Consumer Protection Subcommittee discussed the need for regulatory relief and other topics with NCUA, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), legislators and CUNA staff during their fly-in meeting this week. A chief topic of discussion with both NCUA and CFPB was CUNA’s Telephone Consumer Protect Act (TCPA) petition, and CUNA’s subsequent letters to the agencies asking for their support.“Our subcommittee members represent a diverse section of the credit union industry, each heavily invested in seeing regulatory relief,” said Elizabeth Eurgubian, CUNA’s deputy chief advocacy officer. “We had substantive discussions about ways we think regulatory burdens can be eased on credit unions, we thank the agencies and staff for their time and look forward to continuing discussions as policies take shape.”CUNA’s TCPA petition requests the Federal Communications Commission issue a declaratory ruling that provides 2 routes to resolve confusion about what communication between credit unions and members are permitted under the TCPA. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
