The Connector Supports President Obama’s Reelection?
The Connector held its annual retreat this past weekend, and since the omnipresent Health Care for All (HCFA) representatives were not in attendance to write up a summary, I thought I would provide an overview of what was discussed at the meeting, and outline some of the future challenges for the Connector. The agenda can be found here.
I must mention a moment that I found especially troubling.
Politics at the Connector.
Secretary Gonzalez made a statement during a conversation about protecting the reputation of the Connector and media coverage that struck me as odd. He said that the Connector needs to be seen positively as it means a great deal to the political future of the Governor and the President. He encouraged board members to use the Connector staff as a resource so they are “well armed with information” to present a positive story about the Connector.
Appropriate political positioning for a quasi-public agency? I will let you decide.
