“I don’t understand why there is no one fighting to keep insurance rates low or fighting for folks that have problems obtaining the benefits owed to them by insurance companies. I am passionate about leveling the playing field for all North Carolinians and making the Dept of Insurance more focused on the people and less so on helping insurance companies make millions of dollars.”
