Burgess to Return as Consumer Advocate
The start of today’s meeting of the Senate Banking & Insurance Committee included an announcement from chairman David Simmons that Steve Burgess, the committee’s staff director, will be leaving to become Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate. Burgess has held the consumer advocate position previously, but most recently has been the committee’s staff director for the last five years.
“This is an opportunity the State of Florida is very fortunate to have,” said Senator Simmons. “Steve is a dedicated public servant, an individual who is incredibly bright, incredibly dedicated and incredibly loyal. I have been truly blessed and honored to have the opportunity of working with Steve.”
