I think Joseph Sontz misses the point about Metro columnist Brian McGrory’s criticism of Liberty Mutual (“You fail to see how Liberty Mutual is a strong corporate citizen,” Letters, June 18). Lower policy premiums and far lower CEO salaries and perks would benefit all policy holders as well as the public.
People with lower insurance premiums get to choose which charities their money goes to, instead of a large corporation making that decision for them. Lower insurance premiums by Liberty Mutual could lead to lower premiums across the insurance industry, which would be boost to the economy.
Liberty Mutual may be putting resources into the community, but much of that money actually belongs to the policy holders who are paying for the insurer’s massive overhead.
