Steve Poizner for Insurance Commissioner 2018

Editorial: Chronicle recommends Poizner for Insurance Commissioner

"As elected insurance commissioner a decade ago, Republican Steve Poizner was unsuccessful in his attempts to persuade the Democrat-controlled Legislature to make it a nonpartisan office. He believed the job as regulator required a commitment to independence and integrity that transcended any party loyalties — and to an impressive degree, that is how he performed his duties during his four years in office.

Now the entrepreneur-turned-politician is back in pursuit of his old job, having shed his party affiliation. Poizner is making a bid to become the first independent — or 'no party preference,' as it’s listed on the ballot — to be elected to a statewide office."

"In electing Poizner, Californians would not only get an insurance commissioner who shows he can navigate this critical position, they would be sending a message to Republicans and Democrats alike that this does not need to be a one-party state. Vote on the merits, not the party label. Poizner is our choice in the June 5 primary."
