Public Service Private Benefit Medical
In this March 22, 2013 photo, Brian Shay, city administrator of Hoquiam, Wash., stands next to a run-down playground that is next to an old fire station that the city plans to replace. If it wasn’t for the medical expenses of a small group of retired firefighters and police officers, the city could have had the money on hand for such improvements, but instead had to seek the approval of voters to fund the projects.
