25 May Dr. Eugene Allen Lands on the Front Page of the Sacramento Bee
Dr. Vinson Eugene Allen is a leader with over 20 years’ experience working with elected officials and local organizations to improve his community. In 2019, Compton’s City Council presented Dr. Allen with the City of Compton’s Recognition and Appreciation Award for Citywide Testing for Breast Cancer Awareness.
In response to the COVID19 pandemic, Dr. Allen created a family foundation focused on supporting the community. Through the foundation, Dr. Allen and his family have provided food to the unhoused and quarantined, and tested for COVID19 for free. Dr. Allen is also well known in Southern California for his annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway and Holiday Toy drives during the holiday season for families in need.
His leadership ability has been proven over twenty years of running urgent care centers throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. As California Insurance Commissioner, Dr. Allen will use these skills to manage the cost for consumers and ensure reliability in the insurance marketplace. This process will be accomplished by the following key issues:
- Expanding the insurance social safety net by providing actuarily sound discounts to seniors and low-income residents.
- Protecting the public’s safety and availability of homeowner’s insurance by addressing the impact of wildlife.
- Prioritizing the law enforcement duties of the Department of Insurance to reduce the impact of organized crime on auto insurance rates.
