LETTER: TCB president makes statement on bank safety

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

To the Editor:

It is no secret that the FDIC closed two banks in the past couple of days. These closings have made many ask, “How safe is my bank?”

The answer at our bank is, "Very safe!" The two closed banks were not community banks and operated in areas that we would never dream of. We are a highly capitalized well-run community bank.

Tri-County Bank opened in 1892 and has lived through the Great Depression, two world wars, highs and lows in the economy, and yet we are still operating and have every intention in doing so for many more years. No depositor has ever lost money that was FDIC-insured.

Community banks like ours are the strength of our nation.

If you have any questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact any of our employees.

Chuck Dixon
Tri-County Bank President-CEO
