Janice Laws
MESSAGE FROM YOUR CANDIDATE
I genuinely love and care about people. This is MY industry that I have worked in appreciatively for the last 16 years. I have served thousands of Georgians, helping them understand and take care of their families with insurance. As an agency owner, I was the one they called first when something happened and I got fed up with saying “I understand, but there is nothing I can do”. Because there is something I can do!
I can FIGHT for Georgians! I will fight for you and your family as your Insurance Commissioner. I truly care about making a difference the way my granny raised me to do all the way back in Jamiaica.
We have an issue in Georgia with our car insurance rates and that is where I will fight first – to change Senate Bill 276 and save more money for working families like yours and mine. I am up for the challenge and ready for the fight!

Even though Janice’s career as an Insurance Professional has been rewarding, during her tenure, she has also seen just how difficult it is for hard working Georgians to progress when the odds are stacked against them. She has seen her clients struggle to pay the skyrocketing auto insurance premiums month after month. She has seen them unfairly denied coverage and experienced discriminatory practices.
YOUR FAMILY IS HER FIGHT
