Covelle has been under scrutiny since a federal audit report released in April raised issues with the authority's financial practices. Shortly after the audit, reports surfaced that Covelle allegedly hired close friends and family for jobs and contracts.

Here is a guy who may end up getting indicted and the city awards him $31, 500 to just go away..how fishy is that? Mr Covelle must know a lot of dirt and they are hoping he takes the money and runs...why not fire him? Why not just wait for the investigation to be complete..this is what happens when you have one party rule..Massachusetts is democrat run..its also one of the most corrupt states in the country...Diane wilkerson, Gerry studds, Willie lantigua, Chuck turner, Tom finneran, the kennedys, sal dimasi, Charlie flaherty , John bonomo, and on and on...these people are criminals yet mass voters keep voting them on..imagine if there was some oversight? There really would be scandals but in the good old boy network only the blatant might get pinched..especially if your a democrat.
