Let's see....hmmmm.....the article says Benwood has a 'cadillac' policy for it's city employees and it's totally FREE to the employees. ObamaCare is good for the city but would cost the participants.

Thus, 'let's stay pat and wait another year before we try ObamaCare' would be logical for any who have no intent of ever paying a dime. Makes sense, just sayin'

Just for the heck of it, how about asking the mayor or council members for comment once in a while instead of the police chief.

The city is in such great financial shape that they can afford to pay 100% of the health care and the big salaries that the department heads get, becuase they ignore the fundamental services of goverment and pick and choose who, how, when and what to do in accordance with Longwell's wishes. One only need review news articles and talk to the citizens of Benwood to see who really runs that monarchy!!

This is a smart and wise decision by the Chief. The only other option is to have all Obama voters pay for the Consultant cost/premium increases.

He is Police Chief, Public Safety Director, Economic Development Director-and those are just the official title.

Unofficially, he is the Boss, engineer, zoning manager, code enforcement manager, spokesman, treasurer, public works director and demolition expert.

Does Fast Frankie own the city of Benwood? He is just the Chief Of Police, nothing more. They have a Mayor and council to run the town, why doesn't he just keep his nose out of it and run the police force? The bridge might have well been down now also if he had kept himself out of it. Fast Frankie wants his name out in the public and he is just the Chief Of Police. Leave well enough alone!!! Geeeeeez
