Former state insurance commissioner endorses Caligiuri

Sam Caligiuri’s record of implementing creative solutions to legislative challenges continues to win him support for his Congressional campaign. Today, Former Connecticut Insurance Commissioner George Reider of Farmington endorsed his candidacy.

“Sam has the understanding and commitment to reform health care in a manner that preserves the best of our current system while at the same time expands care and more affordable coverage to millions of Americans. He knows that this can be done in a way that does not require government takeover of another industry. Sam has the right ideas for striking this balance, which will be critical as our country tackles this challenge,” said Reider.

“I am humbled that Commissioner Reider believes my ideas make me the candidate he supports in this race. It is a privilege to be able to tap into his years of experience and expertise as we look for solutions to the important issue of health care reform. There are numerous jobs here in Connecticut, and in the Farmington Valley especially, that hinge on thoughtful reform of health care. I look forward to working with Commissioner Reider on solutions that achieve the reform we need without jeopardizing those jobs,” said Caligiuri.

Reider has served in the public sector as an elected official at the local, state, and national levels. In addition to having served as the Connecticut Insurance Commissioner, Reider was also President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. Reider is also a former Chair of the Farmington Town Council and a current member of the Farmington Republican Town Committee.
