Your honesty is refreshing.Anon Me,
As I understand it, there are about 300 staffers at the Commissioner's Office. I'm guessing that 30 or so are high level appointee's, department chairs, special investigators, lawyers and other "consultants". If I am elected, those positions will be reviewed first and I expect quite a few will resign once the reign of John Oxendine is done. The rank and file employees who answer the phone, file the paperwork and actually get the work done will continue to do just that.
Of any of the candidates currently running I think I'm the most aware that Georgia's insurance industry has to make a profit. I'm concerned that the industry's trend towards consolidation and the shift towards internet based service and marketing is going to kill off more than a few of Georgia's insurance agencies. The large firms are winning the negotiating war in the ObamaCare waiver pie fight and that's going leave a lot of Georgia's individual agencies and brokers SOL.
I have as much banking experience as I have insurance agency experience. Zero, nada, nothing. I've had bank accounts and insurance policies all my life as a consumer, some experiences have been good, others not so much. Fortunately, if I am elected I'm pretty sure the brainpower I'll need to get the job done is out there on the open market and I will put it to work.
A good leader is able to surround himself with the experts that know how do get the job done the right way.
The leader provides strategic direction, those he has selected execute the plan.
