State Representative Gerald Fox III
State Representative Gerald Fox III (D-Stamford) was recently recognized by the Professional Insurance Agents of Connecticut (PIACT) as their Legislator of the Year.

“Representative Fox’s support of his community and his accomplishments as a lawmaker and his understanding of the insurance industry have made him a friend of the association and to the insurance-buying public of Connecticut,” said PIACT President Timothy G. Russell.

Rep. Fox was honored by the group at their annual convention and trade show last month. Fox, who serves as House Chair of the legislature’s Judiciary Committee, addressed agents at the convention’s opening dinner.

“These are local small businesses that are part of our communities, and 2011 was a tough year with record claims caused by Hurricane Irene in August and the historic October snow storm,” Fox said. “Insurance remains an important part of Connecticut’s economy and I’m always ready to encourage growth in the industry and improve the services that consumers receive.”

For example, in 2011, Fox backed a new law (HB6508) hailed by PIACT to improve local underwriting at the agency level by reducing the number of days it takes an insured or their agent to receive a policy history report from an insurance company.

PIACT represents more than 500 independent insurance agents who employ more than 3,000 individuals throughout the state working directly with consumers to meet their personal and business insurance needs.

Rep. Fox is serving his fourth term in the Legislature representing the 146th Assembly District in Stamford. In addition to chairing the Judiciary Committee, he is also a member of the Transportation and Government Administration & Elections Committees.
