The California Earthquake Authority is a nonprofit privately funded insurer set up by the state to provide earthquake insurance coverage. Its CEO, Glenn Pomeroy, will visit the home of the Hayward Fault when he gives a presentation at 8:30 a.m. May 27 to the Hayward Chamber of Commerce Latino Business Roundtable.
The CEA writes 75 percent of the residential earthquake insurance policies in California. It sells quake insurance to more than 800,000 Californians.
"Many Californians have mixed feelings about earthquake insurance - scientists tell them there's earthquake risk, but they are concerned that coverage may be too expensive or come with a deductible that's too high," said Pomeroy. "Now is the time to take another look, because with lower rates and more options, Californians can choose a policy to meet their needs and budget - it is no longer a 'one size fits all' proposition."
All chamber members and their guests are invited to attend the LBR, which meets in the Balch Pavilion north of St. Rose Hospital, 27200 Calaroga Ave.
The Hayward Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has endorsed incumbents Elisa Marquez, Al Mendall and Francisco Zermeno along with Hayward planning commissioner and business owner Brian Schott for seats on the Hayward City Council in the June 2016 election.
The board emphasized its highest priority was to elect candidates committed to economic and community growth. The board’s vote came at its March 31 meeting and was based on recommendations of the chamber’s 16-member Government Relations Council of community and business leaders.
“The Government Relations Council spent two days in interviews with candidates,” said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the chamber. “They recommended four with a vision for the future of Hayward, experience in public policy and economic development, and a history of leadership and coalition-building.”
