Governor Names Yaworsky New Florida Insurance Commissioner
Florida’s governor has named the insurance department’s former chief of staff as new insurance commissioner, filling a position that has been vacant since the former commissioner resigned in late December.
Michael Yaworsky, now vice chair of the Florida Gaming Control Commission, was chief of staff for Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier from 2017 to 2022, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office said in a statement Friday. Altmaier stepped down in December but did not give a reason, at least publicly, and has yet to announce any future plans.
