Morrish scraps request for Citizens job
BATON ROUGE (AP) – State Sen. Dan “Blade” Morrish has dropped his bid to become the next CEO of the state-run insurer of last resort, the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corp.
The Louisiana Board of Ethics had advised that Morrish would have a conflict of interest. Because he is chairman of the Senate Insurance Committee, he sits on Citizens’ board. Morrish, of Jennings, argued that since Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon would hire the CEO, there was no conflict.
