Letter: Ask candidates about health care intentions
Osceola County taxpayers in 2011 paid approximately $50,000 in health care costs for supervisors and a part-time employee. I believe this is unacceptable. One supervisor has opted out of the insurance plan. By that action, the taxpayers will save about $8,100 per year.
Our financial resources diminished greatly with the Minten/Weber lawsuit (about $160,000 after insurance). You can get an exact figure from an auditor.
When a candidate asks for your vote on June 5, ask them if they would be willing to alter their health care coverage. Some have fed at the public trough for too long.
