Though I still wear many hats these days, including as Chairman of the NC Democratic Party, below are several brief messages of mine that are either public safety, campaign, or Democratic Party related.

An overview of my 2016 re-election campaign

Last Friday I sat down and recorded a public access TV show to be broadcast regularly over the next 3+ weeks in the Greenville/eastern North Carolina area. It's a 26-minute long discussion of my background, the work of the Insurance Commissioner's office, my record, and what is at stake in the 2016 Insurance Commissioner campaign. Please WATCH and SHARE. Click here for the video. Thank you! ....

Sign my petition today and share: Help me protect NC senior citizens!

For the past 30 years, North Carolina's Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) has been helping hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians save over $75 million on their health care. Now, some of the politicians in Washington are threatening to cut the SHIIP system that saves money for both taxpayers and beneficiaries.

Re-focus needed

A few days ago I had the privilege of addressing Scotland County citizens in Laurinburg. Here's a link to the newspaper coverage of my visit.

Among my comments, there is this assertion:

“For us to govern, we’ve got to win first, and for us to win we’ve got to get our message out, and for us to get our message out we’ve got to be organized, and for us to be organized we’ve got to have meetings like this even on rainy, dreary days,” Goodwin said from inside the Atkinson Street American Legion post.

In the coming months heading into 2016 we have an obligation - a civic duty - as North Carolina citizens to speak up, organize and rally voters to turn out on Election Day. Too much hangs in the balance for the State we love (and its future) for us to do otherwise.

Homeowners Insurance Decision: Zero Change = $600 Million Savings

It's been a long time since I've posted here but I thought folks would appreciate hearing some (good) news.

Here's a link to the press release and the full Order I issued on Thursday afternoon, plus additional information. This was the first hearing (i.e., trial) on the subject of homeowners insurance in North Carolina since 1992.

And, here is a link to the News & Observer article and a link to WRAL's coverage of the matter.
