Expense reports and health insurance
By tomorrow, I hope to have copies of all the documents I need to calculate the expense reports that each supervisor files for reimbursement.
I do know that Supervisor Gary Skinner and Supervisor Jerry Logan do not fill out expense reports for any reimbursements.Mr. Logan does take advantage of the county health insurance, which is a $8,595 expense. This health insurance is the same that is offered to full-time county employees. It is not offered to any part-time employees.
Supervisor Hap Connors filled out one expense report for $55 for a Quantico Black History Month Association event.
Supervisors Emmitt Marshall and T.C. Waddy have filled out numerous expense reports for gasoline reimbursement.Waddy drives his district quite a bit and has several town hall meetings with his constituents to hear their concerns. He also personally meets with some constituents at their homes to discuss problems.
Supervisor Gary Jackson has expense reports for office supplies, mileage and
cell phone fax machine use.
Supervisor Benjamin Pitts has expense reports for travel to National
Virginia Association of Counties events. At Board of Supervisor meetings, Pitts often talks about issues raised at VACO and NACO events that he attended. Supervisors on Tuesday made him the county’s official liasson and represenative to VACO. He was also recently appointed chairman of VACO’s Administration of Government Steering Committee.
What’s VACO? You can get an idea here. Many stories have been written about the cost of these VACO events.
What is NACO? Check here.
Each year, they have annual meetings. Recently, there have been events in Tennessee and Florida, both of which Pitts attended.
A complete story is on the way.
