Last week: I just wanted to give a quick thank you to everyone who ran for office, regardless of the success of their campaigns. America was built on everyday people giving of themselves for the betterment of their communities and I’m proud of everyone who put themselves out there. Win or lose, there are always positive things to take away from the experience.
Looking ahead: Well, the deck is stacked more than ever in the favor of the majority party as we looked forward to the special session on property insurance in mid-December. There are so many reasons why this is critical for the state of Florida, and this is the first great test of the now more deeply red environment. With 7.03% of the homeowners claims originating in Florida, but 76.32% of the homeowners insurance lawsuits originating in Florida, there are many reforms needed. From eliminating one-way attorney fees to tightening the definition of bad faith to Citizens Insurance reforms, we need change now.
