Sonoma County retirees sue over health benefits
Santa Rosa Press Democrat - Bleys W. Rose

An association of retired Sonoma County government employees filed suit Tuesday claiming that the county reneged on promised health benefits last year when it began forcing about 2,500 retirees to pay an increasing share of premium costs. “Retirees dedicated their careers to the county on the promise of these benefits,” said Carol Bauer, president of the Sonoma County Association of Retired Employees.
