LOTS of tax dollars are being spent in the Delta. But who is benefiting?
The Delta Health Alliance is a non-profit that receives most of its revenues from government grants and manages education and healthcare programs in the impoverished Delta region.
According to a report from the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, the Delta Health Alliance has 4 “executive in residence houses” that are valued at a total of over $800,000 in Washington County while the median home value is the county is only $76,000.
A recent audit of the organization also details that the Delta Health Alliance CEO has averaged more than $350,000 in pay, bonuses, and benefits annually over the last few years.
Mississippi Center for Public Policy Investigative Editor Steve Wilson joined the Gallo Show to talk about the report and a recent audit of the Delta Health Alliance.
