As July Comes to Close, Goodwin Reflects on Recent Travels

Including Recent Independence Day Events

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin regularly criss-crosses the State, sharing news of the work of his expert team and how together they fight on behalf of consumer protections and fair ratemaking.

Though many pols take parts of the months of June and July off, our insurance regulator didn't slow down.

He visited most corners of the State, including beach, coast, piedmont, foothills, and mountains.

Goodwin was especially energized during his July 4th holiday visits and parades. Southport, Troy, Raleigh, and Ellerbe were among his stops.
"Recalling those long, hot weeks when our Founding Fathers ultimately and articulately declared our national independence - along with the patriotic flourishes resplendent at such events - always give me goosebumps and a greater sense of purpose," said the Commissioner of Insurance.
Southport's revered annual Fourth of July Festival was especially inspiring: Colonia regalia, flag-raising, patriotic speeches, Americana-laden holiday parade, and the like.
"I commend the Mayor and the Southport-Oak Island Chamber of Commerce for doing an excellent job once again this year."
Goodwin also delivered speeches or visited folks in Pinehurst, Smithfield, Charlotte, Monroe, and Greensboro during this time frame.
