SUN HERALD | EDITORIAL: Give us the facts, not gimmick and games

If the Jackson County supervisors want voters to believe their message in the past primary election has been heard, the public officials should stop horsing around with gimmicks such as the pension calculator they offered up to Singing River Health System employees and retirees.

Retirees saw right through the questionnaire supervisors asked them to complete. Those questions were loaded, they said, and they boycotted.

What everybody really wants is a full accounting of the pension plan disaster. They want to know what happened to the money that should be in the plan.

They want to know who is responsible for the near collapse of the system that was supposed to pay for their Golden Years. And they want to know how SRHS is being managed.

SRHS should release all the financial statements and let people see what transpired at one of the county’s largest employers.
