Von Beroldingen on Health Coverage

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from December 15th 1969 in San Francisco featuring a press conference by Supervisor Dorothy von Beroldingen, who is responding to statements made about her by the administrative board for civil service employees health plans. She raises concerns that there may be iniquities in the management of city health coverage plans and points out that: "When a public official is being attacked by a board or a commission, he or she is certainly entitled to inquire in detail how that department operates. And what motivates it's actions ... I have no feud with anyone."
