Ousted insurance broker cries foul
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
The Record

Bergen County’s longtime insurance broker, replaced last month with a firm headed by South Jersey political kingmaker George E. Norcross, is asking state and federal authorities to investigate the county’s new deal.

Brown & Brown Metro, Bergen’s broker since 2003, has also sent letters to the county’s health care providers warning them not to deal with the Norcross brokerage, Conner Strong & Buckelew of Marlton.

The county has fired back with cease-and-desist letters to Brown & Brown, and asked the state attorney general to investigate what one provider viewed as “threats” by the broker, in a controversy that has rapidly morphed into something uglier than a typical legal dispute.

“This is a big mess,” said County Administrator Ed Trawinski.
