Florida’s chief financial officer pays the state’s bills, oversees vendors and contracts, and audits government agencies. It’s not a sexy job, but it’s an important one. Democrat Jeremy Ring is far more qualified than Republican Jimmy Patronis, the incumbent who was appointed by the governor to fill a vacancy.Ring, who served as a state senator from 2006 to 2016, understands this is a low-profile, high-impact position. If people know who you are, he notes, it’s only because “you’ve screwed up.” As an early executive at Yahoo, he knows what it takes to run multi-billion-dollar enterprises. He also was an operating partner at Sterling Partners, a $5 billion private equity firm.

BOSTON—Jim Chadwick listened with disbelief to the nurse and caseworker sitting in his living room. He had spent months battling suicidal thoughts, struggling to find solace from psychiatrists and drugs. Losing hope and frustrated by the health care system, he had stopped taking his medication. The anxiety was overwhelming, and he was unable to leave his home to buy food or get to the doctor. But the health care workers were telling him that everything was about to change.

Even his toothpaste.The idea behind the program, run by a Massachusetts nonprofit called the Commonwealth Care Alliance, is that the best way to treat a patient’s health problems sometimes … [Read more...] about Should Medicare pay for toothpaste and shoes?
The city of Portland is preparing to make a wholesale change to how it ranks and pays non-union employees, after a lengthy study found much to improve about city human resources management. Portland's current system for managing non-union employees is an outdated and jumbled mess of hundreds of different job classifications, some of which are exceedingly broad and some exceedingly narrow, and none of which are backed up by data, Bureau of Human Resources officials testified to the mayor and City Council on Tuesday. The system in place today is "not equitable, not balanced, not defensible," said Elisabeth Nunes, the chief human resources officer. Nunes, along with Serilda Summers-McGee, the director of the HR bureau, its staff and labor consultants have spent years devising a plan to redefine the labor classifications and align pay scales. They are now ready to have their plan go before the Council for a vote, set for September 5. Bureau directors who attended Tuesday's meeting … [Read more...] about City of Portland looks to redo exasperating job rankings, pay scales
