Conservative Andrew Marcus Files for Insurance Commissioner | Eastern North Carolina Now

Press Release:

Andrew Marcus, Republican Candidate for Insurance Commissioner

    Raleigh, NC     Volunteer firefighter and former prosecutor Andrew Marcus filed today as a Republican candidate for Insurance Commissioner. Stepping out of the business world to make his first bid for political office, Marcus pledged to fight for the people hurt by higher insurance rates and neglected by divisive, unproductive politics in the Insurance Commissioner's office.

    "North Carolina's Insurance Commissioner should be the firefighters' strongest advocate, not standing in the way of needed cancer treatment, and fighting for families stretched thin by today's high prices, not rewarding his political cronies," said Marcus. "But the reality is insurance rates are increasing year after year with no transparency and no accountability. While I haven't been running for office for 30 years, I do know this: Joe Biden isn't the only one to blame for higher costs because North Carolina's home and auto insurance rates have increased more than inflation. It's time to set aside petty politics and hire a conservative fighter for the taxpayer."

    Marcus started his career as a prosecutor, where he worked hand and hand with law enforcement to achieve justice. He has worked as an insurance regulator and personally led investigations of insurance company misconduct which resulted in fines of hundreds of thousands of dollars against the companies who took advantage of their customers.

    Now, Marcus serves as a volunteer firefighter and lawyer in private practice. He is uniquely qualified to bring an outsider's perspective to the role of Insurance Commissioner, having represented all sides in the insurance industry - policyholders, small businesses, doctors, agents, hospitals, and insurers.

    Andrew Marcus comes from eleven generations of North Carolinians, with one ancestor signing the Mecklenburg Declaration. He and his wife, Sophie, have two sons and love to spend their free time doing anything outdoors.
