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! ....

NC Insurance Commissioner Issues Largest Insurance Company Fine Ever in NC

Read here the press release and primary details about the settlement. It's the largest ever fine imposed by the Office of NC Insurance Commissioner and the NC Department of Insurance, and almost double the previous fine of any insurance company here in our state.

Note that the specifics of the settlement are linked within the press release.

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.

Ned Barnett's Editorial About NC's Higher Health Insurance Premiums

Already online tonight, linked here and below, is a Ned Barnett editorial based on a lengthy interview he and I had a few days ago. If the State of North Carolina had taken my recommendations from 2010-2013 then health insurance rates for many individuals and families would be lower now in 2015, 2016 and the foreseeable future than what we are experiencing now. The editorial should appear in the print Sunday version of the N&O tomorrow. I welcome your feedback.

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.
