Reports On Police Chief In Dire Straits

Police Chief Mike Covert holds up medical devices and prescription drugs he needs daily to stay alive.

On this week’s “Morning Headlines” on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, Jim Kevlin, editor/ publisher of www.AllOTSEGO.com (and Hometown Oneonta & the Freeman’s Journal), reports on how Cooperstown Village Police Chief Mike Covert was down to $17 after the County of Otsego cancelled his medical insurance and the Village Board declined to put him on the village plan.  Only a GoFundMe drive organized by a former colleague of Mike’s in the sheriff’s department, Mike Ten Eyck, help keep the chief from destitution.
