Citizens’ Board Chair Wants Full Review Of Firings

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The drama continues at state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp.

A day after Gov. Rick Scott asked his inspector general for a full blown investigation into the dismissal of four Citizens employees, the insurers’ board chairman has asked for a full report at its meeting next week on the how, what and where the employees were dismissed and who made those decisions and when.

Citizens’ board chairman Carlos Lacasa wrote new Citizens’ President Barry Gilway on Tuesday with concerns that fallout from the employee dismissals has resulted in a firestorm of criticism that will now require actions aimed at restoring public trust in the company. Citizens was originally designed as the insurer of last resort, but has instead become the largest property insurance company in Florida with some 1.4 million policyholders.
