Back in March, I filed a lawsuit against Hainesport Township (Burlington County) seeking a list of all public officials, employees and retirees who have been enrolled in the Township’s health insurance plan during 2011 to 2014.  For background on that suit, which I won, please see my blog here.

Haineport originally said that it would appeal the lower court’s decision that forced it to make the information public.  Recently, however, Hainesport withdrew its appeal plans.  On December 19, 2014, Township Clerk Leo F. Selb, Jr. released an Excel spreadsheet which I’ve placed on-line here. (Note that there are tabs at the bottom of the file that show the enrollees during each year.)

It appears that all five of the Township Committee members have coverage for them and their spouses or families subsidized by Hainesport taxpayers.  For example, Committeeman Bruce MacLachlin has coverage valued at $26,909.40 per year.  Of that amount, MacLachlin contributes $807.28 while the taxpayers pick up the remainder.
