Retirement board member clarifies his remarks

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I am writing to clarify my remarks made at a special meeting of the Board of Selectmen on May 15.

I incorrectly stated that the Retirement Board was the worst run department in town. What I should have stated was that prior to February 1, 2012, the Retirement Board was the worst run department in town.

In February 2012, the administration of the Retirement Board was transferred to the Human Resources Department under the able leadership of Alison Graham and Melissa Crowther. Together, they have corrected numerous errors in benefits and beneficiaries while at the same time converting the defined benefit administration from an in-house system to Transamerica.

They were able to reduce the head count in the department by half and I think serve as a paradigm for the future of good government in Greenwich.
