Quality, affordable health care for employees of County contractors

Today I sent this memo to my colleagues on the Council, announcing that I will be introducing a bill requiring County contractors to provide affordable health insurance to their employees. This is a difficult issue, but I am convinced there is a solution that results in health coverage that is affordable for employees, for the contractors that employ them, and ultimately for the County. As we work through the legislative process, I look forward to discussion and input from my colleagues and the community.
