KMOV Interviews Mayor Kelly on City-Paid Health Insurance for Elected Officials
The day Patch reported on the health insurance perk for Brentwood's mayor and some aldermen, KMOV news did the same report, and interviewed Mayor Pat Kelly on camera.
Thursday afternoon, Russel Kinsaul of KMOV News 4 also reported on the practice.
Kinsaul visited Mayor Pat Kelly at city hall and asked him about it:
"Some residents of Brentwood are raising concerns about the health benefits given to the city's part-time elected officials.
Considered full-time employees, the officials get the same insurance package as other city workers.
That means their premiums are paid for by the city.
Mayor Pat Kelly says the policy isn’t new and he doesn’t consider it to be out of line."
