Sheri Woo in on Water Board!

Sheri Woo was appointed to out going Tera Pruscha's 2nd Division Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District Board seat this morning. Ben Sheppard was the other nominee. Barbara Hecathorn was the only dissenting vote. The 2nd Division district is McKinleyville and Westhaven area.

I went to the meeting to see how the process of appointment would work out and was shocked to see a compromise. Originally the board had been split over each candidate. When the vote was called to question by Aldron Laird, Bruce Rupp said he would like to comment. He outlined how the board had been working together for the good of the community. He pointed out President Kaitlin Sopoci Belknap's actions on the board as one of compromise, when he had first judged her to be a Green Party "bomb throwing" environmentalist. Bruce explained that while he agreed with Ben's basic Capitalistic business entrepreneurship and risk taking model, he would make a decision based on the good of the water district as a whole. He apologized to Ben but voted in favor of Woo. Barbara spoke on her favor of Ben. It was pointed out that Ben had publicly ran for this position so he had a track record of wanting the position.

Ben was very gracious with the decision and complimented the board for their work together. He did point out that the process was not a pleasant experience but he respected their decision.

My opinion: This is a very strong board with very diverse opinions but seem to be good at problem solving and working through their political differences. Good for them.

What happens in a case where a insured driver has health insurance which covers bodily injury from an accident? Is the Uninsured Motorist coverage for medical bills primary, or should the injured party's personal health insurance pay as primary? My car is registered in Atlanta but I just moved to Florida. Can I still get my car insured in Florida and keep my car registered in Atlanta?Any help??

Most people are reluctant of having their friends, brothers or relatives to drive their cars for them because they are not sure if they could still claim insurance policies or if other people are covered by the policy. Who is insured to drive your vehicle? any help?

Just how much can a company legally cost you to let a plan holder out of his car insurance?
Simply how much does your company charge when a person needs to cancel and how much pressure do you use to continue them?
What are some suggestions or something like that we can say if our consumer has many months still left on his existing auto insurance policy? Certainly, all of us are not going to hold back until his renewal comes due each time.

When adjusters get that package thing by a lawyer with records and documents, photos and other records and etc. For how long does it commonly state in the letter to respond? Do adjusters genuinely reply by or on the date? Whenever they respond by phone, mail, letter or fax?
