|Info||DAY ONE PRIORITIES |
ACCESSIBILITY AND SERVICE
Day one, I will SERVE the taxpayers, by deploying four rolling regional offices, where you can sit down across the table and talk face-to-face with an investigator. This is a big state; a Georgian should not have to get in a car and drive to Atlanta, just to ask for help!
DEFENDING AGAINST FRAUD
Day one, I will DEFEND our seniors and any honorably discharged veterans, by doubling the penalties on insurance companies guilty of victimizing them. I will consistently guard against fraud of any kind and order stiff penalties, whenever it is found.
CONSUMER PROTECTION SERVICES
Day one, I will PROTECT your right to information, by immediately making available policyholder complaint statistics for all insurers doing business in Georgia.
CONSTITUENT UPDATES AND TRANSPARENCY
Day one, I will COMMUNICATE with Georgia families, by holding telephone town hall hearings on proposed excessive rate increases. There will be transparency and focus on what is right and fair for Georgia.
