Insurance Commissioner Candidate Dr. Eugene Allen kicks off 2022 with large endorsements from insurance groups, the medical community and city mayors. The Doctor has gained endorsements from insurance giants MedPOINT Management and Global Care IPA Insurance Inc., as well as insurance agents across the state. Many church leaders and physicians throughout California stand in support of the Doctor's candidacy. Duane Bridges, M.D., quoted, "Dr. Allen's approach is correct - it's time for politicians to stop being in healthcare positions. It's time for fairness, equality, and transparency for all Californians." Click here to view the complete endorsement list.

The African American candidate known for his hands-on approach to solving community issues was humbled by the support and donations received from local leaders, churches and healthcare workers. Candidate Allen vows to represent those who have no voice when it comes to insurance procedures, laws and regulations. 

Dr. Allen faces two democratic candidates in the upcoming race in 2022: Marc Lavine and current incumbent Ricardo Lara, both career politicians. The Doctor states, "We have all seen and lived with the conditions of the pandemic and California wildfires. Both have changed the lives of every resident of our state. It's time for change."

Campaign management has plans for Dr. Allen to visit many California cities this February, which include Oakland, Vallejo, Sacramento and San Francisco. During these visits, he will speak with city officials, the public and healthcare workers. His goals: listen to the concerns of the citizens, discuss common ground issues that affect California residents and speak with grass-root community leaders to further their reach throughout California. 

Dr. Allen is the founder of Dusk to Dawn Urgent Care facilities, located throughout Southern California. For 20 years, Dr. Allen has provided culturally diverse doctors, physicians assistants, and nurse practitioners for patients looking for medical professionals who represent their language and culture. Dr. Allen is connected to the people of each community; he is a brother to some and a son to the elderly. A genuine person to those who come in contact with the candidate.
