With Future Uncertain, City Approves Business Support Team for Molina HealthcareRelease Date: 2017-07-12
With questions surrounding the future of one of the city’s largest employers, the Long Beach City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to assemble a business support team in an effort to ensure that Molina Healthcare remains in Long Beach.
The request came from Sixth District Councilman Dee Andrews who asked the council to give the healthcare giant the same attention and retention efforts that the city gave to Boeing’s C-17 program. The item was co-sponsored by Council Members Lena Gonzalez, Daryl Supernaw and Vice Mayor Rex Richardson.
“Molina Healthcare has been a wonderful partner to the city of Long Beach, while we do not know what their next steps are, I want to attempt to have our city reach out to Molina and see what type of assistance we may provide,” Andrews said.
