Former Hamilton Mayor John Bencivengo reported to federal prison yesterday for accepting bribes from the School District's broker. This story could have happened in any of our hometowns since our state statutes offer little to no protections or guidelines for preventing broker's conflicts of interest. You can help change that now with our model best practice.
Consider that when a town or school district selects an insurance broker -- there are no guarantees that they are securing the best insurance rates. Even worse, officials may flat out lie and say that the broker is working "at no cost." We've seen that whopper quite a few times.
But there doesn't need to be blatant corruption for your town to realize savings. Even in communities with hard working, honest officials and brokers -- they may be missing out on serious savings. In Cherry Hill, citizens helped their community save $6 million just by comparing their benefits to the state plan.
