Concord Selected To Run Call Center for Health Exchange
After reaching a deal with local unions, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors voted to select Concord as the site of a call center for the California health benefit exchange. Meanwhile, a Contra Costa Times editorial criticized the "last-minute" deal, noting that hours before the vote, "there was still no publicly available financial analysis telling supervisors and Contra Costa taxpayers what risk they would be taking on."
