Although we had hoped the local papers would cover this, they have not.
Mayor Leo Wiegman, who is up for re-election in November 2015, announced at a recent board meeting that he has gone on the state exchanges and that the taxpayers will no longer be paying for his and his family's health insurance. (Bear in mind that you would have never known about his taxpayer funded health insurance without the freedom of information requests filed by both Virginia Calcutti and the members of Croton United.) Thank you to Croton United and ALL the members of the community who stepped up and attended meetings, work sessions, and wrote letters--and who continue to do so--on this and related issues of open government--with special acknowledgement to Bob Anderson, Bob Resnikoff, and Joel Gingold--as well as Brian Powers and Rick Turner.
Follow-up soon. Stay tuned.
