Former Insurance Commissioner Outlines Reasons, Priorities for Independent Campaign

Steve Poizner, former California Insurance Commissioner and founder of several nonprofit organizations to provide better education to disadvantaged students, explains to the CalChamber Board of Directors on May 24 that he is seeking to return to the Insurance Commissioner’s office as an Independent (the ballot will list him as having “no party preference”) because he believes there is no place for party politics at the Department of Insurance, which oversees matters critical to California businesses and consumers, including insurance for wildfires, health insurance fraud and cyber crime.
