"Well, we wanted someone to tell us the semantics of the Chelsea Wagner and her husband arrests now. So if you're just tuning in, you just got in the car and you just flipped on the radio. So that is the story that Chelsea Wagner, Allegheny county controller are Chelsea Wagner. And her husband. Cari, Moseley have been charged in the incident that happened what earlier this month in Detroit after a concert? And so what does this mean, how do you proceed charged on the nineteenth March six, I apologize. So we bought was sent a one of my friends in one of the best lawyers that we know so Phil how are you? Good afternoon. Mardian wendy. Hi, Chelsea was charged with two counts of resisting and obstructing the police a felony. And he was charged with one count of disorderly conduct were dummies. Phil what happens next for them. What's going to happen next is since it's a felony charged. And there is a warrant which must be issued. Then that means that they'll be going back to Detroit and being arraigned now keep in mind, and Raymond is just to secure your appearance and determine bond, and so I would think she's a smart lady she holds public office. No flight she wants to fight this. It's been very clear with her public statements as well as her Representative. So she would then have what's called an RO war blind. I would think in this situation, and then she would be free to do whatever she wants so long as no crimes no further crimes anything like that. And violation of the Bonn, no contact with perhaps maybe the Detroit police, and then they will essentially come back for what's called a preliminary hearing and a preliminary hearing is nothing more than. An opportunity for the defense to see what the prosecution if they can make a primer facial case. And so she'll be given the opportunity to her lawyer. She is a warrior to she's a very smart woman. Yeah. She'll the her council web the opportunity licensed in Michigan to cross examined the the officers involved and actually get to the meat of the matter. Now, it's a very low standard for preliminary hearing as people know, we came from the English at least we left English, and but we still follow. English law and procedures throughout the states or identical. So that's what will happen, and I can tell you from everything that I heard she's a fighter, and I know she's gonna fight this. Stalled the way we're listening to fill and fill tell me about this. Obviously, it seems in my mind that the most critical evidence here is whatever video that police officer has from his his best is uniform. Tell me how that's gonna play in here. And and how damning that could be to her case, and we'll have to release it in the prelims that they're gonna have they they don't necessarily have to release it in a preliminary hearing that's always a issue of contention for clients. They want it released. They want it release. They really don't have to give it until after what's called the next phase the four more, Raymond. And then you request discovery formerly now if they believe that they want to show it because previous statements made by, you know, her her husband, whatever. Their Representative to really, you know, lock it down. They can but the government meaning the prosecution has that right to bring it if they want, but they would they're not compelled Wendy at all. Gotcha. I'm kind of curious physically fill in terms of the semantics of it does this happen tomorrow. Do they get two weeks? Does this week? I can tell you this. The reality of the situation is preliminary hearings because there are so many from the minor offence. Okay. Jaywalking or disorderly conduct which is a summary here. And also, a low grade misdemeanor, but when you're dealing with a felony cases serious her busy gender. The courts are very good with postponing. Preliminary hearings for also to secure council Myers per number of reasons. But you know, the thing you have to keep in mind is what is going to actually transpire between now and then. What at times? You may have counsel reach out and say, look, do we just don't wanna go through all this. She's a very busy demanding schedule. Is there a way that we can have this resolved at the preliminary hearing and then walking into their preliminary hearing, you can just essentially get the case closed through some type of minor summary offense. I was gonna say what would that kind of solution? Look like for her. I think a solution. You know, keep in mind, I said she was fighting before. But if you just wanted to resolve and I've represented judges house of representatives representing lots of politicians you do that. Because one European official to you just wanna put it in your past. And it would look like some cleaning no felony, Phil. Now, she loses her job. Under the state constitution and watches legal analysts have talked about this over the years from different universities. And that's true. Now, it's always been an issue whether they can run for public office. But the issues they can hold it with the attorney general and or the district attorney's office. So so you're not you're not surprised by any of these. Developments today, are you? I am a little surprised Wendy. Thanks for the question only. Because from what I was able to ascertain. I did the reason they were charged with felonies in this is under the statute, you're not allowed to lay a finger on a police officer. If if it were you or me, and we're not in that protected class persons, and there's there's there's dozens of them. I mean, it seems like the list grows every day. But if you're not in that protected class you'd have to show serious bodily injury. Fill. You're the man. Thank you guys. Again. Powered by celebrating. Diller partying Wendy busy afternoon on the runway slowdowns.

With my husband me why? You. Wagner who was arrested along with her husband says she suffered bruises on her arms along with a sprained wrists from the encounter. She says those arrests were unjustified. I know that when I ask a question, particularly if they have someone in handcuffs, and he's asking and just the same way. What have I done? What have I done, and there are no answers. And thank goodness that we have a video because this would be a very very different situation.

"Katie K. Scotty, thank you fifty degrees right now. It's gonna stay nice for the afternoon down to twenty three tonight. Our next chance of rain doesn't look like it comes until Thursday. And it's going to be even warmer than those details coming up to twenty six at Katie k. Continuation the Chelsea Wagner thing. So I get sent the whole video Saturday morning. I sent it to Wendy. And so what do you think we go back and forth? And I'm sorta like is this really the video. That's what I thought because I was expecting something. Totally different. Right. Yeah. I was expecting her unhinged. Jump on the cops back. Yeah. The husband dropping f bombs right, right? None of it. None of that. I mean, I asked people to go online and watch the video some of them picked on her some didn't. But if you just watch the video, you don't really see anything agree GIS offensive actionable in that her husband was out of control in the bar may have been. But if I don't believe what they're saying about her in the hallway. Why would I believe what they're saying about him in the bar, and he's not charged with anything? Yeah. So it's sort of like, wait, what's exactly going on here? And don't get me wrong. Look I like I like police officers. Do I think that they have a heck of a job to do? No question, and we're actually going to drill down a little bit on that. Nobody wants to be a police officer anymore. No number when you're little. It's like the things that you wanted to do aside from maybe playing sports, you wanna be a firefighter police officer who wants to put their lives on the line for an grateful by and large public there. You know, absolutely at handed to them every day, and I get shot for no reason and they're put their lives on the line every single day. So don't get me wrong. I'm all about police, but things happen in this case. So now under her door, you should watch the video online, we'll wrap it up for you. And she's very calm cool. And collect they slam the door interface is that my husband, and I have the right to see my husband, Tom where are you taking him? She follows them down the hall doesn't say really anything. She said what the one thing she said what what did he do or what? And they kind of brushed it off. You know, disorderly will how it is not important right now. Right now, if you say, yes, the state. Another hotel, right? Where get his things and heard them say there's a Holiday Inn across the street. He was actually very cool. They said you have enough money. He said, yeah, I'm fine with money. And then they get up to the door. The elevator. Do the police do and they have her husband. And she gets on the elevator before they do. Yeah. Where are you taking him? This isn't going anywhere until I know where you're going. If this was Joe, what would you do probably something very similar win a lot louder. Not you well, regardless. And then you'd be saying her last name isn't Griffin at Sorenson. So I've never seen her. And then he grabs her I didn't really see any kind of fall or anything. I look like something might have gone to the ground. I mean, she gets arrested in jail. Right. You know, if we're gonna take a side here based on what I've seen. I would say Chelsea was right. Yeah. I didn't really see anything that would convict her in the eyes of public opinion. She hasn't been formally charged yet, the police department recommended assault and battery right and talk. Seeing that either for me not seeing that either. I just don't well, you know, technically. And that's the truth is if you touch a cop, I can understand that. But but what I told my wife, right? Good cop. Everybody goes to bed. Right. Right. Right. If you're staying here. Okay. You're a little drunk. Yeah. Can you please? Just go to bed. This is your husband. All right. He was a pain in the ass in the bar. Yeah. Go to sleep tonight. Yeah. Instead, she ends up in jail, and I talked to her today slam today, but I'd like to have a couple of minutes with her on the why not I think so I mean, we'd be talked about it extensively. I'd like to hear what she has to say. So anyway, for the general public that already tried and convicted or and I don't think we did we were fair. I'd say she has a good case in court mostly what happened in civil the very interested in seeing the police camera from the bar. Yeah. Well from what again, he wasn't arrested. Right. All right.

"Six six three nine hundred ten twenty if you wanna call or if you wanna text. This tech says evidently, the Allegheny county controller didn't read her bible to well. Being in Detroit. It's not the same as being on the other side of the wall. You can take control added the bird, but you can't take the bird out of the controller. I don't know what that last part, man. The the story is what's the term the fancy broadcaster. Oh, it's a developing story and it's developed because. Wednesday early Wednesday Allegheny county controller Chelsea Wagner and her husband. Were in a hotel in Detroit. And there was a confrontation with a Detroit police officer. And their story contradicts. The each story told by Detroit police chief James Craig. Their story is not the same at all. You're just starting to come out as up today. Nobody's been charged. Josie Wagner says quote mischaracterization are so gross. And really so appalling after a really appalling experience that's appalling in its own right? So is it appalling? They shared her cell phone footage. Okay. I wanna see everybody's cell phone footage polices footage Wagner and her husband went to Detroit for show, and it was supposed to be a post Valentine's Day get away. They went to the show. They had dinner afterwards. They had wind both denied being intoxicated. They got back to the hotel room Wagner went up to the room while the husband remained behind and went to the bar after a period of time. The husband planned to go up to the room when he realized he didn't have his room key, the staff at the hotel wouldn't give him another key and couldn't awaken her if they called her room, according to him. Her staff and family here in town knew where she was staying in contact the whole hotel in emergency. They explain why our phone was on a certain do not disturb setting. One eight six six three nine one ten twenty or Katie k radio dot com. I'm just going to keep my mouth yet. Because I've been to Detroit many times and every time I managed somehow in spite of my boyish and juvenile behavior to not have the cops show up at my door. Dick and Dayton. How are you, sir? You're on Katy k what's up? Are you longtime? No talk. I know I know house things in Dayton men. Good. Good. Go to workflows we're we're getting ready for spring right on its fertilizer season. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hey, I was telling your screener something that. President Trump talked about in his speech. What what is your viewpoint of the infrastructure of say our bridges over the Ohio river bridges bridges on American infrastructure by now, it's falling apart of all the heavy traffic right is falling apart. I know and it's becoming more dangerous every day, and and here's doubled depressing. And I just went through this. If you want to find out how bad the Commonwealth the PA is taken care of their crap drive in another state. Because the minute you leave the Commonwealth to Pennsylvania, the roads, get better. And when you go from that state to whatever the next state is the roads get better and the roads get better the infrastructure of this country has got awful in an crumbling every moment right now. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Another thing. They talk about the the John Roebling bridge over the higher river there in Cincinnati ghetto heavily traveled by you know, your trucks that go to say like Lowe's and everything else. Yeah. You just don't know. What it, you know, another thing too? I was down with my friend down to the the river. I think the locks and dams of our river should be, you know, now all of that all of that is crumbling, California. Just ask for forty or fifty million dollars. I think because they've got a damn that. Yeah. That's about to burst. And they were told no we don't have the money for it. And my thinking is the money needed to fix everything. If that dam burst is so much more. Then you know, the old answer prevention worth worth a pound of cure. Yeah. No, our infrastructure is a disaster. And I was talking to. Real good friend of mine. He travels with his job. And I said, hey, man, I've noticed something. And I I drive around a little bit and make the occasional trip here there, and I told him what I had noticed that every time, I leave Pennsylvania. I noticed that. The roads are better and the bridges seem less twitchy, and sketchy and he said, yeah. Then anywhere he goes. And he's all over the place. Net's infrastructure. Bridges. If if if the bridges in western PA ain't good ain't nobody good cause there ain't no way to get around without him. If the bridges are scary and the tunnels are scary. You'd better stay home, Greg east liberty, Greg. Thank you for calling. Your Katy k high. Yeah. How you doing? I'm good. What's up, sir? Hey, I just wanted to offer my opinion about the Chelsea Wagner. My opinion is that all these bodies. Cell phones. Pictures and all of that. I think that they're so like irrelevant because I think that once they took the man up to the room Vichy identified him. They should've turned him loose and let him go. I'm trying to figure out what happened versus what was said happened. Until I get all of the video footage. I don't know if I've got the complete story. I mean, this story is literally being written right now. Wagner said she was shot in horrified when she was awaken from deep sleep by five men that included ho so hotel security and Detroit police and her husband who was handcuffed, right? If he was handcuffed. If he was under arrest, the nation was taking him straight to jail, not well, but I'm not gonna defend 'cause I don't know enough about it. I will say this as a person that's been handcuffed. When they put them on you. They tell you, or at least a my were putting these on you for years security and hours. Okay. All right. They they ate ain't your busted. It's this is for your safety. This is for our safety our safety. So you don't do something your safety. So we don't have to pop you in case, you think you wanna do something. Well, once she identified him, don't you think that should ended? It don't know. Don't know. What was there? Come see. That's what the police are saying, and what she's saying is very different Wagner disputes everything. Including the police said that she put her hands on an officer six or seven times before she was arrested. Well, that's damn simple show the video either that happened or that didn't happen. And I will tell you this the minute the second in Greg bet, you'll agree with me the second you touch a cop all bets is off man. You're right. And I talking about right or wrong about reality. And the way the world once you touch a cop if that happened. I'll betcha the whole situation was bad. Because a woman she did which is going to do. She was going to go to jail with her husband. And that's what she did. You know, what they're defending their children in their in their husband. Oh, man. Well now, Detroit but Detroit's spot. Now, if they don't issue a an arrest warrant, that's an open invitation to an unlawful harassment lawsuit. Well, yeah. That's what it that's why they're leaning so hard on these body cams. Yep. Men if I'm a cop. She doesn't Hugh Hugh proposes not to sue they'll drop it. But if she goes to the neighbors, we'll all go. We'll all go our separate ways. Yeah. It's real simple. And I've told this story on more than one occasion. Greg one of my cousins. You know that one cousin you have where even if you weren't related you'd actually hang out with them and kind of like them that one. He's he was a cop. He retired. And he was a cop from the time. He he went to school to be a top. He became a cop. He was a cop. And I've talked to him about this. He said explained to me. Why someone wouldn't want a body camera? And he just kind of grand. I said no explained it to me. You're you're you're cop, and he came up all the way through and he came up Alabama state trooper ended up a homicide detective, okay? And I said, what would the reason be for somebody not wanting a body camera? And after he grinned, and I said come on tell me he told me. And he talks real slow. So it took a while. No exaggeration, does speech pattern is no faster than forest. But I'll speed it up his thinking as a career law enforcement official was if you don't want that camera you doing something you don't want people Nova. No more than that. He said if you're doing right. You want that camera? Don't you want everybody? If something happens, you want everybody to understand everything they can about the situation that caused whatever to happen actually happen. Now what happened in Detroit? I don't know. Detroit officials aren't returned to messages. She has yet to be charged. He the husband has yet to be charged. But the push in Detroit is to get him charged. And like, I just said if charges aren't filed I would be stunned if a lawsuit doesn't instantly followed that. Newsradio ten twenty. We're almost at a time.

"Started friday. There's been a lot to cover on this Friday. I don't know about you. But sometimes on Fridays, I just want to decompress and on wind. So we've talked about Warren, Ohio, how that city is trying to rebound from this shutdown of the GM plant all wearing blue today to great show solidarity in Warren, Ohio, we've talked about what could happen on the civic arena site, new plans, great vision, we'll see if that happens we even talked about going to the prom do project prom. But like I said there's a story that sitting out here that we haven't touched on until now, and I'm gonna let you drive the conversation. The conversation is about allegany county's controller Chelsea Wagner. Her husband Kahari Moseley making big news in Detroit. I guess David for yesterday. They went to a concert symphony performance on Tuesday. They went as a late Valentine's Day celebration. The rapper was a part of this. Symphony presentation. But after that, they went back to their hotel. It went south from there. It ended up with Kahari Moseley her husband down in a hotel bar. Didn't have a key to get into his room. Chelsea Wagner was in the room. The police came. I'm abbreviating this story for the purposes of this conversation ended up the Allegheny county controller Chelsea Wagner was arrested by Detroit police, she spent the night in jail. She and her husband came home yesterday. We're still waiting to see what charges she could face. The detroit. Police department says they want to charge charger with assault and battery it's up to the district attorney there to decide on that. We haven't heard, but Mike you've got a thought on this. Mike. Hello, mike. Tell you what I'm gonna put my gone hold. I'm thinking that Mike may have stepped away actually. Yeah. Is this Mike? Okay. Hi, anthony. How are you? Listen, the whole kale. This was nothing nothing, but racial profiling all the hotel had to do was go up store. Staff member could have went upstairs. To to the hotel wagon will sleep awakened her to tell her I forgot her key. He has a different last thing. Could you come downstairs? But no that's not what they do in America today. They call the police. So once the police get involved, this is where things get out of whack, and I don't blame it's Wagner when when the police come knocking on your door, and they tell your husband's attain, and you asking questions YV detain, and so they they don't like that. So now, she's the aggressor and she's going to the pokey. So this whole thing. What the wagons eat? You. Do what MRs Wagner has been need to do is follow lawsuit against that. Okay. All day or the ones blue this whole thing out of proportion because this is ridiculous. So Anthony, I'm with you on a lot of it. I think we're a little of this gets complicated. And and I'm not taking sides or anything like that in that. Let me be clear before somebody causing and says that as I understand it that two officers involved or hotel security involved were African Americans. So it doesn't, ma'am. Hold on. Okay. Matter once they throw the blue on the I'm blaming the hotel the hotel workers as I understand it. These were the hotel workers were first started before the police were even called. That's the way I understand the story. So the thing I'm saying is I do think that race probably was a factor. I'm just not sure at what point it entered into the confrontation. What if something goes awry here when he wasn't causing a disturbance? He forgets the key. If you have any questions about him, you send stay up up to awaken. The wise see how I'm. If he's in the lobby he's in the hotel bar, and he says, he doesn't have his key you call the room. I don't even think you have to send staff. Someone say she didn't answer. So you should have. Here that we do now in America. Just call the police. Yeah. It's. Oh, yeah. Ball. What big do? I hear you. Hey, Anthony, thanks so much for your call. Like, I said this is like the elephant in the room. We haven't really talked about it. You know, it's interesting because I think any time there are people of different races involved in the conversation. There's going to be a layer of race that comes into the conversation. So how we how we peel back those layers the comes very interesting, especially right now as we wait to find out if the county controller is actually going to be charged in this incident. We're still waiting probably won't even know that today, but join in the conversation eight six six three nine thousand ten twenty right now, you're listening to Katie k ten twenty. There were smoking sections on airplanes in restaurants, and then gradually it got to be.

"The voice of Pittsburgh, Katie KABC radio. Good evening. I'm man. Gino, welcome. It is a Friday. Can you believe it? It's february. I granted we still have this and ten more months to go for two thousand nineteen. But it just seems as though was just rattling on by doesn't it? I noticed it was getting close to six o'clock, and it was still a little bit of daylight out there, which is wonderful. I'd love that the longer the daylight hours. We have I I just can't get enough of that. But it just anyway, it just seems as though it's. Going along at breakneck speed already for two thousand nineteen. There's a lot to talk about. And the big issue. The story today that is the lead story is what's happening with the PWS, and the attorney general deciding that there were charges to be filed. In fact, the number of those charges north of one hundred sixty one hundred sixty one counts, the DA saying, listen, this goes back to the fact that the PWS say was replacing water lines and didn't properly do that. In violated, the Pennsylvania's safe drinking water act, the PEO SAS saying whoa, hold on a second. We know what we did wrong. By the way, we self-reported what we did wrong. And we self reported to the Pennsylvania department of environmental protection, and as a result of that agreed to pay a civil penalty of two point four million dollars. That it'd be the PWS's says that they're deeply disappointed in the attorney general's charges. And this goes back to something that Chelsea Wagner had mentioned that she had her concerns regarding what was happening at PAWS say in last spring made mention of vista the attorney general, and then he decided along with his staff to go ahead and move forward with charges at this point. And joining me right now on the disk institute of Pittsburgh, Newsline is kitty K radio political analyst Bill green and Bill. I'm kind of curious about your thoughts of what the attorney general decided to do with these charges, and then the reaction to that from the PTO say with their release of their. Press statement earlier today as well. Well, I appreciate that. The AG is is discovered. The western part of the state. That's number one number two. Most of this work has been done by the controller Chelsea Wagner over the last couple of years when she first broke this. She was auditing the authority, which has responsibilities. And let's just say in General Santos that they bid for water and sewer authority has not been known for its most efficient nor for its profiting over the years decades. And as a consequence a lot of poor management has gone along the way. And as a consequence there's been a lack of maintenance, and that's what's spout up the system instead of working on the system over the years. It wasn't done. And that's why we had to boil water in eastern for quite a period of time. Not you recall follows twenty seventeen and and I think that it's right that they did report the fact that they didn't notify people what they were doing that isn't a law, but the overriding controlling agency years the department of environmental protection, it's not the department of Justice. So I I'm not quite sure what the the is doing in fact, if you actually dig into it, Robert, you know, these are third degree misdemeanors. These are not felonies or criminal charges. They're they're misdemeanors are basically slap on the knuckles by the saying, you should've known better. And they're saying well we did. And we told and we got fine because we told but that was the right thing to do. Now, you're piling on. And I think that's what the attorney general did the day he was just piling on. This is show boating by Josh Shapiro concerned from the people USA is that if there are these finds that come down. Then all you're going to do is take money away from the PWS say that could go toward fixing lines. That are consistent with the regulations of the department of environmental protection, and then delayed the process of finally getting all the water lines repaired and not a whole lot more than that. Yeah. That's part of it. But I noticed in in some of the details that the AG is saying that this will not be a multimillion dollar settlement. I don't think it'll be very much at all. In fact, I think what will happen is. We'll revert back to the county, for instance, tribulation, and it'll be distributed back to be WFAN as I say, this is just merely showboating. I don't think there'll be any serious money taking out of BWI essays budget. And I think everything more progress has normal, and why do you think there's this effort to in your words showboat? Well, I think that Josh has a long time plan to become president United States and part of everything he wants to do is make sure he gets reelected very strongly in twenty twenty. And so he he wants to win very big and he has to win bigger than. Governor wolf did last year to make it widely known nationwide. And so he's doing this in the western part of the state to and he doesn't really need to because what he did with the with the Catholic church. I think was monumental and nationwide impact. And I think that loan says got national recognition by, but but I think he may be coming in for a favorite for somebody. Or he just wanted to make the six o'clock news. He's also making news is well, I had Chelsea Wagner on yesterday, the Allegheny county controller, and she said she's also spoken to Josh Shapiro. The attorney general about her concerns regarding the split that his impending to be finalized between UPS and a high Mark at the end of June. And she's getting some assurances from him that he is going to do all that he can to investigate this. And it sounds to me is though. That sounds good. But if there was anything that the attorney general could have done this has been an issue that this Commonwealth has faced now going back what six years or more at least governor Corbett look at governor. Wolf looked at it. The attorney general I forget her name who preceded Josh appear. She was acting you recall after yes, Catherine Cain was had to retire. If you will. And so this has been viewed by law enforcement has been viewed by the governors, and what we have here are two corporations that do not get along. And so they have decided that they're going to have a divorce and and the gym packed full. Because of the number of people that are impacted by it, but it is not they're not breaking any law. They're having a business disagreement and they've come to settle that business disagreement. And and so that's the way I look at it from the from the beginning a lot of people think that they motion should play into this. And I think both both depart both companies. I think have done that. And they've tried to make it easier for people, and I think going out of their way to do. So. But right now, the last thing this divorce needs is added attention to it because I think it has been settled there's no other way around it, and what people are asking for government to interfere with business and have them stop this separation. And I don't think that's the role of government anyway. And neither did the governor's wolf forgot my Corbett. So you use the term business, but in the truest sense of the word, they're not businesses. They're supposed to be acting as nonprofits and doing business. But but they're not necessarily supposed to be a for profit business, and that's supposed to be trying to defeat the competition. They're supposed to be mutually serving the needs of the people. And it's not like it shouldn't be a conflict of saying, listen, you can either get help from the Red Cross or you can get help from the Salvation Army, and you can't get help from both choose between one or the other. That would be an offense to us that the organizations would be fighting at that level about who gets help. And who doesn't get help. It seems as though that you have these two organizations that are nonprofits that are supposed to be acting in the public interest, and it said they're acting in what would be a corporate profit interest. Instead, they're they're not operating as charities. Okay. They are not they're operating as nonprofits that doesn't mean. They don't compete in the marketplace. That doesn't mean that they don't need to to have money for their expenses and their and their first class doctors that both facilities have and and so they are in essence competitors. And that has been sustained by the courts, and then by lawyers that have looked into it again, we might not like the outcome, but to their credit both insurance companies have UPS's insurance Wang, and and high marks insurance mine have have looked at this and try to get together and get along, but that hasn't been successful. So they can't do this split that doesn't mean anybody is out of doctors are out of hospitals where he had plenty around here and people can go to them the the greatest impact and this should have been done. But wasn't what they should have modified the transition for seniors out of. Out of. With medicare? So that that would be Medicare is accepted. UPN? See I don't mean to say this. But but Medicare plans that are done by. Hi, Mark are not accepted UPS's. That's the real. That's the real bugaboo of all this and the argument then is as well, just go to the high Mark doctors and high Mark facilities. If that's the insurance you have you just don't have access to another thing. I'm really concerned about is this insurance you could. And that's something. I brought up reinsurance Aetna insurance that and you'll be accepted PFC. Right. And that was one of the things that I brought up to MS Wagner yesterday, as well that even the county because she lamented that the county is is is in this situation where they only offer one insurance or the other, and I was curious as to why the county controller wouldn't be looking into why the county doesn't offer a third insurance that we all the employees can choose that one. And then go to either of the doctors. Or either of the facilities that they would choose. But for whatever reason that's not where they are. I'm also concerned Bill with what's coming up next with a place like children's hospital that if you don't have the right insurance. Your child is not going to get the care that they need and get access ability in children's hospital. Well, not at UPS's children's hospital. But I'm sure I I'm not familiar with Mark. But I'm I'm sure that they had services at the Allegheny health network that better for children. I have no doubt that they do. They just don't it's not as widely known as children's hospital is in in Oakland, and it has been known for ever and ever. But you make it very fair point Bill. Green is joining us. Do me a favor you have a few more minutes. Sure. All right. Don't go anywhere. I have to take this little break..

"Connection dot net and turned hope into action. Twelve thirty seven in the afternoon, and you know, Fridays you're supposed to be slow kicked back. Take it easy. A lot going on this Friday this Friday afternoon. Well, Allegheny county controller Chelsea Wagner is planning to host a series of town hall meetings about what many are calling the impending divorce between UPN see and high Mark we're going to talk with her in just a second about that. But because we had breaking news Chelsea let me get you to weigh in on these charges. That the attorney general just announced against the Pittsburgh water and sewer authority. Well, I think it's somewhat unique and that it's against the organization. And so I've done a lot of work over the years really criticizing our authority structures. So here you have an authority that is under the jurisdiction of the mayor. But just basically charged as an entity. So I think that's a little bit unique in that way. Our office met two years ago with the attorney general and his whole staff about this. And also with the department of environmental protection for the state, noting our concern. So I think this is something that was certainly a long time coming, but my concern continues to be that the mayor and certain members on council and others who have intent to privatize will try to use this as an excuse to push the privatization, and I think that's that's the big concern. In here, which this is a failure in government. It's not a failure of thumb shadow. Government of an authority that is faceless and nameless. I think we have to say that we expect accountability from our city leadership on water, and if that's not happening city leadership needs to fix it. Okay. That's loaded right there. I don't wanna continue down that road. Because I know the main reason why we had you here today was to talk about these upcoming meetings. You're going to be holding throughout the community to deal with this to to quote, your release impending divorce, and I said earlier I felt like a lot of our seniors in particular like the children caught in the middle of a bad divorce. Absolutely. It is. And it's I I've used that analogy to within our office. But it would almost be as if the kids were not a thought whatsoever. Com because it would be as as you know, you'd have to parties just looking at assets. And then way down the line there is by the way, they're the children. And I think it's so concerning many people have already been harmed by this. But especially as we approach July one when there is more finality, and you have many of our seniors who are going to lose access based on their coverage. So we started up at Titian online. The website is.

Jim we'll talk to him coming up in about an hour and twenty minutes from now. In the meantime, Chelsea Wagner is joining us Allegheny county controller on the disk institute of Pittsburgh, Newsline, MS Wagner, welcome to Katie k radio good to have you. Thanks for having me. Mundane is always going to be on. Absolutely. Thank you. Now, you're concerned about what's happening with UPS and a high Mark what are your intentions in order to try to change the impending split the takes place in just a couple of months? Well, we wanna make sure that the real stakeholders, which are that people are able to get their voices heard. And so we have launched an initiative called healthcare PG h online healthcare P T H dot com where residents can sign a petition. They can also do it on paper. But there they may do it online, but they also can share their stories, and I think that's what is particularly important because with her what? Hi, Mark wants what you see once. But I don't think that this should be about the prophet particularly of institutions that have been built on the backs of our residents with our tax dollars. So the purpose of all of this is to make sure these stories are being elevated to most notably the decision makers in Harrisburg. Because when we looked to who can really have the most immediate impact, you're looking at the state attorney general to the legislature. And the governor. And in particular, the attorney general has indicated to us that they are using the signatures that were providing and especially those stories, and I think that's so critical as we near that July first deadline, which is just the next phase. And that's when so many of our seniors are going to be impacted and addition to so many who have already been impacted, and then you look at some of the things slated for years to come where families won't have access if they have the wrong insurance to children's hospital or western psych to me, this is really incumbent on government to do the job and not allow these healthcare giant to make decisions that government really needs to step in and intervene. Obviously as a county controller part of government. Why should the people have any confidence that those that can do something about it are going to it? Isn't as though we just learned about this state lawmakers have known about this for what four six years, maybe even longer than that way back. Yes. So they've not done anything. And I also recognize that politicians oftentimes don't until they absolutely have to is that what you're anticipating or at least maybe what you're hoping for that wants it finally gets the point to where it's do something or nothing then that will push and compel lawmakers to then do that something. Well, I do I think that is the hope, and it's an unfortunate thing that's not unique to this situation. But whether we're talking about local government or federal government. There is always about tendency to kick the can down the road or kick the can over to another sticks at hoping that somebody else is going to do it. And so I do think as we near this latest deadline of July first we're seeing the harm that it is doing to upper take. Vulnerable community, especially as it relates to seniors in our community. But I'm also trying to make sure that people realize one thing that I don't know that many in this area. Have understood is that worth really the only ones here in western Pennsylvania who are being treated like second class citizens and this whole war other areas of the Commonwealth have access to all the hospitals if they carry one insurance card or the other. So it's very very concerning to me that when you have UPN see headquartered here that we're being subjected to these sorts of injustices, which really again falls on government to address, and I think just state leaders should do something. I think it goes all the way down to all of our local elected leaders that we have to start using all of the tools in our toolbox is as I go. Around the county. I think this is probably the most important issue facing many residents, and we can do something about it to to just resign ourselves to say that oh this is already occurred. This is what's going to happen is really what's wrong. I would say what's wrong with government. This is why we are elected to represent people and to make sure that people are treated with Justice with dignity, and this is so critically important to so many of our residents all of our residents, even if they're not affected right now, they are going to be in the years to come Allegheny county controller Chelsea Wagner. Joining us on the disk institute of Pittsburgh news, nine for those that would suggest the alternative could easily be buying in insurance that isn't one of the two that then gives you access to both. Why isn't that a viable option? Well, I've stated within this whole fight. That that concept of choice is not something that most people have. And so to me, there are two issues there one is the fact that most people are only able to access the insurance that their employer provide. So they don't really have a full choice. I know if you're saying Allegheny county employees, you can only choose right now between high Mark or UPN see you can't choose one of the other providers, but I think it's more problematic. When the other providers are coming into the marketplace, really, I think in an attempt to quash the Allegheny health network system, and I believe that benefits no one because we should have, you know, healthy economy, and that you can have not just one giant that's providing everything. Setting rates, but healthy competition. I mean, I think that's what we all stand for in a democracy helped me out. Why is it that allegany county employees are only offered one or the other wouldn't an easy way of being able to help them mitigate this and make it easier for them is to offer them that alternative. I do think it would be historically. I can tell you as it relates to the county's finances. The county has received large subsidies and prior years and even to the present year from high Mark so that we would use highmark insurance. That is not a decision that my office. It's part of that's a decision that's made by the county executive and his staff though with tried to be part of that discussion over the years and unlike prior administrations, they did not want the involvement of the controller's office, although some of our authorities and. That strange fragmentation of government that we have some of our authorities have gone that route for their employees. So there is not a good answer to that. But I think that even just making that decision to use one of the kind of newer insurance providers newer to this market. At least I think that still is something that I have seen by background something that has been pushed by UPN see bringing those other alternatives in so that they could push out highmark, more and more. So I still think that there is not a level playing field when you're looking at those options, so they solve the immediate problem in many cases of giving their ensured access to both of these networks. It is still something when you look at the market share of how the high Mark market share has decreased significantly over the years in my fear is that. It will continue to harm our marketplace. In terms of the quality of care and having access to all doctors, but also costs when you have just you know, one giant looking to control the market Allegheny county controller Chelsea Wagner. Joining us. Do you have a few more minutes? Absolutely. I appreciate it. Stay quiet here. Okay. Well, tell them. The little finger over the lips thing because it was just a few more questions that I have for you one of the things I want to bring up when we come back is is this too little too late in the efforts that she has in having these town hall meetings will ask elegantly kind of control Chelsea Wagner that as well. And as county controller is there an official role in this that really there's an oversight to be played or just the expressions of concern government official..
