Lawmaker: St. Clare’s pension board voted to get insurance but never bought it

Local

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – New York Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara (D) announced on Thursday that he received more information from the attorney general’s office on the St. Clare’s pension investigation.

According to Santabarbara, the attorney general’s office says the pension board voted to purchase insurance for the pension program but never actually bought it.

Santabarbara and Senator Jim Tedisco (R) both say they received calls from the attorney general’s office revealing this information and more garnered from the investigation.

Meeting minutes from fall of 2017 show two months after the vote, a board member changed his vote, ultimately resulting in the insurance not being purchased.
