Release: Senator Hernandez Honors Small Business of the Year

November 1, 2017

SACRAMENTOSenator Dr. Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) has honored Gary Baca’s business “Counter Point Public Adjusting” as the 22nd Senate District’s 2017 Small Business of the Year in recognition of its long-standing support of the community and commitment to customer service and high business ethics.

As a small businessperson himself, Senator Hernandez recognized this business because he is intimately aware of the vital resource small business are to local communities.

“Small businesses are critical to the economic well-being of California because they employ the vast majority of our state’s workforce, foster new opportunities, and provide a valuable resource to local families and community members,” said Senator Hernandez. “I thank Gary Baca for his service to our district and commitment to help local families and other businesses. Congratulations to you and ‘Counter Point Public Adjusting’ for being honored as the 22nd Senate District’s 2017 Small Business of the Year. I hope you continue supporting our community for many years to come.”

Licensed by the State of California Department of Insurance, “Counter Point Public Adjusting” aids community members that have experienced property loss, such as fire, water damage, theft or vandalism by working with insurance company adjusters.

Businesses that are able to negotiate insurance settlements in the best interest of the insured, such as those currently experiencing fire damage, are an asset to our community. Within the next few weeks, Gary Baca’s company will be getting involved in the wildfire claims in Northern California. “Counter Point Public Adjusting” has also come to the aide of Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas, working to help more than two dozen families whose homes were destroyed by this natural disaster.

Gary Baca has selflessly donated his time and efforts to assist families impacted by property loss throughout the country. Before starting his small business, Gary Baca helped a large number of churches, local parishioners, and shopping centers that had been heavily damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008. In addition, he has helped the Los Angeles Fire Department and other fire-related organizations and efforts, in the past.

He then opened his small business in Southern California in 2012 with his wife, Cynthia.

Senator Hernandez presented Gary Baca a Senate resolution in recognition of his small business.
