VANCOUVER, Wash.-For the fourth consecutive year, Columbia Credit Union has been voted the "Best Financial Institution" in Clark, County Wash. by readers of The Columbia newspaper.

Colleen Boccia, SVP of marketing, said the credit union's home market is experiencing both economic positives and negatives. It still suffers from double-digit unemployment, with many people being retrained for industries beyond just timber and lumber, but Vancouver, Wash., is also a bedroom community for Portland, Ore., and with no state sales tax in Washington, there is somewhat of a "boom" of people moving from Oregon to Washington.
