MESSAGE FROM YOUR CANDIDATEUnder my leadership, the first order of business of the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner is to address the cost of automobile insurance to Georgians. Auto insurance rates in Georgia have increased dramatically over the past ten years, which has made insurance nearly cost-prohibitive for many Georgians. With the passing of Senate Bill 276 in 2008, proposed insurance rate increases go unchallenged. I believe that proposed rate increases should be required to undergo an intense evaluation process to determine if a rate increase is justifiable. I will use my office to challenge insurance providers and press lawmakers for changes. While I support insurers and the business community, I do not support them at the expense of Georgia’s consumers.
As Georgia’s next Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, I will put consumers first. Far too often, the needs of everyday Georgians go unmet to protect the interest of insurance companies. I know, because I have led a successful career in the insurance industry for nearly two decades. Over the past 16 years, as an insurance agency owner, I served countless Georgians, helping them to protect and rebuild their lives. I have a deep understanding of the insurance industry … what’s broken and how to fix it. Your family is my fight and I will ensure that insurance companies are accountable to Georgians.
YOUR FAMILY IS HER FIGHT
