Union County Savings Bank banking on community

NJBIZ: “If you drive around most inner cities, you see an abandoned bank, buildings you see for sale or for lease, you know, people have left, right? And that’s not what we’re doing here,” President and CEO Joseph Yewaisis said. “We’re doing the opposite.”
