I’m a little late in posting about this, but it’s still worth discussing. It’s the controversy that bloomed recently over at the courthouse, where there have been discussions about whether county commissioners should be included in the county health insurance plan.
The commissioners are not currently on the plan and, according to our story today, won’t be included any time soon. But at least one commissioner, Jerry Fischer, had sought to be included.
Should county commissioners — or other part-time elected officials, like city council members — be included in insurance programs with other government employees?
