HELENA, Mont. – Lindeen has appointed Browning High School graduate Laura McGee Assistant Deputy Insurance Commissioner.
The Montana State Auditor’s office is a criminal justice agency charged with protecting Montana’s consumers through insurance and securities regulation, and also through informing the public about insurance and securities issues. McGee, who graduated from Browning High School, is an enrolled member of the Blackfeet Tribe.
“Laura brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will serve the people of Montana well,” Lindeen said. “She shares my commitment to ensuring Montanans are treated fairly by the insurance and securities industries, that we find solutions which ensure access to quality and affordable health care, and that our state lands are well managed for the futures of our children.”
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau also voiced support for McGee’s appointment. “I am so proud of Laura becoming Assistant Deputy Insurance Commissioner,” said Juneau. “She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to her new job and will be a great asset for Auditor Lindeen and the work of their office.”
Laura and husband, Dan, have three children, Tiara, Danny and Aliyah. Dan is currently a math teacher and assistant football coach at Highwood High School. This past November, Dan’s football team won the state six-man football title 20 minutes after his daughter, Tiara, won the state volleyball title. All three children attend school in Highwood.
McGee says she looks forward to using her experience building long-term relationships with customers and developing significant marketing and outreach programs for the benefit of all Montanans. “This is a great opportunity to serve the people of Montana,” she said.
