It is a crying shame when the citizens of Newton cannot trust their elected officials and hired city leaders. We were told in the article of the Kansan the city of Newton was savings $26,000 by moving our city insurance policy to Hutchinson. But that was a lie because we paid $20,000 up front and now we are paying the new company a fee to administer the policy. We were also told we were getting more for our money but now it has come out we have the same policy as we had with our local insurance carrier. I feel if we cannot get the truth from our hired leaders then they should be fired. Remember Re-Newton — shop and spend with fellow Newtonians. What a joke. If our city commissioners went to Hutchinson for the insurance to save taxpayers’ money, why don’t they make all decisions they make to help us? Since they don’t work for “we the people” and trying to keep everything going up on us, I don’t think that was their decision.
