Mark Naymik, reporter for Cleveland.com spoke with America’s Work Force on June 26 to discuss new developments in the Cleveland Councilman Ken Johnson investigation.
Naymik, who has been reporting on the Cleveland Councilman Ken Johnson investigation for nearly an entire year discusses new developments in the case. Over the past few years, Councilman Johnson has been claiming his monthly allowance of up to $1,200 in reimbursement without providing any receipts or any detailed list of what he is spending money on, raising questions on the authenticity of his requests. Naymik said that someone is finally auditing Councilman Johnson and they hope to crack down on his unethical requests for his maximum monthly reimbursements. He also told the story about Councilman Johnson quitting his position, activating his pension, and then having other people on the council reappoint him the next day. Naymik really wants to stress Johnson’s unethical behavior in hopes that more people start paying attention, ensuring he is held accountable for his actions.
Financial advisor, Dan DeVerna spoke with AWF on June 26 about different pension plans that a person could select. In detail, he discussed one pension plan where you will begin to receive your pension and if something were to happen to you, your spouse will then receive part of your pension. DeVerna also talked about that same scenario, but if you do not have a spouse, your pension could go into your life insurance and your children or grandchildren will be able to receive it from there.
AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about Alaska potentially shutting down if a budget levy is not passed and Arkansas making a work requirement in order for a person to receive medicaid.
