Former Senate President Out as Leader of HealthTrust

Brady Carlson for NHPR
Peter Bragdon in 2010

Former Senate president Peter Bragdon is no longer executive director of the public risk pool HealthTrust, a job he took in 2013 at the expense of the Senate presidency.

HealthTrust provides health insurance to New Hampshire municipalities and school districts. It was formerly part of the Local Government Center, a risk pool involved in a legal battle with regulators over allegations of mismanaged money. The LGC has since split into HealthTrust and Property-Liability Trust.

HealthTrust's board chairman, Peter Curro, says Bragdon was hired to help steer HealthTrust through the regulatory battles that are now nearly over. He says the board is searching for a director with more risk pool experience. General counsel David Frydman is serving as interim executive director.

Bragdon will continue to be paid until his contract ends next June.
