A local insurance agency likely will receive thousands of dollars for arranging a deal between the Killeen Independent School District and its health care provider for the 2013-2014 school year.

The district confirmed it used Killeen-based Bigham Kliewer Chapman & Watts as the agent for its employee health insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield for the current school year.

        there is no doubt this is another good ol boy deal and conflict of interest. and with one board member especially no names mentioned, but she was recalled awhile back.

        @ It’s not our money; it’s their money,” Delano said. “People are very worried that they will be paying for these premiums.”
        ------------------
        Someone's going to be paying them and it isn't the ones on the board who arranged and voted for the plan.
        I do see that from the Killeen-based Bigham Kliewer Chapman & Watts business site.
        That William P. Kliewer who is one of the managing partners of the group, is also
        Secretary of the Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustees.
        That would seem to be in the line of a conflict of interest to many.

        This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who follows the area's "Good Old Boy" through KDH. The area's old money holders will always get their cut, then get great press as "community leaders" when they throw crumbs to the people in the form of unusable land (that they must get the contract to fix) for a park or set up a tax advantaged "foundation" to help who they view as disadvantaged. KDH - follow up on C12!!!! Name names!!!
