(Sacramento-AP) — Assembly Insurance Committee Chairman Thomas M. Calderon says he will run for
California insurance commissioner next year.
The post has been held by an appointee since Chuck Quackenbush resigned a year ago amid allegations
that money was improperly diverted from insurance companies in the wake of the 1994
Northridge earthquake. He has not been charged, and now
Calderon, a 47-year-old Democrat from Montebello, cites his experience in the Quackenbush investigation and in working on
state´s worker´s compensation law.
He has represented a portion of southeastern Los Angeles County in the Assembly since 1998. His
brother is former state Senator
