State Sen. Larry Taylor last week closed his Truman Taylor Insurance Agency and joined Galveston Insurance Associates, one of the oldest agencies in Texas.

Taylor, who is serving his fifth year as a state senator, said the move to Galveston Insurance Associates allows him more time for public service.

“I still have a lot I want to accomplish in Austin on behalf of my Galveston County constituents and joining GIA allows me to continue devoting the time needed to serve, while knowing my insurance clients will be well taken care of,” Taylor said.

Galveston Insurance Associates has been operating in Galveston for 125 years and has had an office in Friendswood since 2010. Taylor, a Friendswood resident, and his two employees, joined Galveston Insurance Associates’ staff of 38 at the Friendswood agency.

“The Truman Taylor Insurance Agency has a great reputation for providing top-notch customer service,” GIA President Garry Kaufman said.

“The agency has played a valuable role in the Friendswood community and surrounding area for decades. By joining forces, we’ll be able to provide even greater service to our clients.”

Taylor was a second generation owner of Truman Taylor Insurance, which had been in operation for 55 years.

Founded in 1892, Galveston Insurance Associates is a full-service insurance agency specializing in commercial, personal and life and health insurance. Galveston Insurance Associates is one of the largest independent agency writers of windstorm and flood insurance in Texas.

Larry Taylor is going to do what is best for Larry Taylor, regardless.

And he is not a friend of public schools.
