Once again, the Jackson County Board of Supervisors is trickling out bits of information without addressing the core issue at Singing River Health System.
That issue is, of course: What happened to the pension fund?
Before any remedies are considered, either criminal or civil, or any tax increase is levied to pay for a pension shortfall for that matter, we need to know what caused the plan to fail and who is responsible….
…So we, and the pensioners, continue to wait as the supervisors, through their attorney, selectively release information that serves their agenda. Meanwhile, pensioners, fearful of losing their benefits, sit under the hot Mississippi sun in picket lines hoping for justice.
