Forrester hosting Forum on LGC Issues 189

CONCORD — State Sen. Jeanie Forrester has announced that she will hold a public forum about the Local Government Center with the center's recently named interim director George Bald on Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Tilton Senior Center, 11 Grange Road.
The forum will give members of the public a chance to ask questions about changes at the LGC following an order by the state to refund $50 million to cities and towns and for the LGC to reorganize its operations.
Bald, the former commissioner of the state Department of Resources and Economic Development, was named to head the LGC after Maura Carroll stepped down as executive director in February.
Last August, the state ordered the LGC, which operates risk pools that provide local governments with medical, property, workers’ compensation and other insurance, to return $50 million in 2010 overpayments to its members. The LGC was also ordered to change operating procedures and become more transparent.
Forrester, R- Meredith, hosted a similar LGC forum in Plymouth last month.
Forrester is asking those planning to attend the Tilton forum to contact her by Friday either by calling 271-2609 or seding an emailing to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
