Legion Riders, Legionnaires, Sons, & Auxiliary:
American Legion member Robert Goza (Groveport 486) lost virtually everything due to a severe sewage backup/damage caused by a recent flood in Pickerington, Ohio.
Robert has children, a boy and a girl, (Elias 3 and Jasmine 4 1/2) who lost all of their toys due to the rise of sewage in his house.
I am heading an effort to help Robert and his family, and it would be nice to have the Legion Riders of Ohio step up with some toys for the kids; but anyone can help.
We can coordinate a toy run for a future date (soon) to collect the toys and present them to the Goza family.
Please email me directly with anyone who is willing to help out at shigley710@yahoo.com

What is your experience with the National Flood Insurance Program?

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is broken.  The program’s flawed design gives all taxpayers and many flood insurance policyholders a raw deal. 

According to the National Resources Defense Council, there are tens of thousands of properties in the program that have flooded multiple times - including one home that has flooded 40 times and has received over $400,000 in flood insurance payments. This kind of wasteful spending is unacceptable and unfair.  But until we make needed reforms to the program, lower-risk policyholders will continue to pay higher premiums than they should to cross-subsidize these properties while taxpayers foot the bill of an actuarially unsound program.

With the Flood Insurance Program facing a debt of $25 billion to Treasury, all of us are stakeholders in the program’s future.  So whether you own a flood insurance policy or not, I want to know what you think about the Flood Insurance Program and its pending reauthorization.  I invite you to Click here to take my survey.

Taxpayers should not be paying to keep a government programs like these afloat. It is my hope we can incorporate private sector participation to bring in choice, competition, and to take some of the burden off of tax payers.
