Baria joins board of consumer group

State Sen. David Baria has become the first Gulf Coast representative on the board of United Policyholders, a group that helps consumers nationwide with insurance issues.

Baria’s experience as an attorney, policymaker and Hurricane Katrina survivor who lost his Bay St. Louis home will all be helpful to United Policyholders, said the California-based group’s executive director, Amy Bach.
