Calderon To Run For Insurance Commissioner

(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
lives in

Hawaii.

Calderon, a 47-year-old Democrat from Montebello, cites his experience in the Quackenbush investigation and in working on
the

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

Charles Calderon.
