McCoy’s overtime pay

I read with great interest the Dec. 21 and 22 stories by reporter Suzanne Carlson about ex-Vernon Mayor Jason McCoy paying himself more than $8,000 in overtime for working during storm emergencies.

An outside source should be hired to see if McCoy can legally accept the money, plus someone needs to check if any of his appointed cronies (i.e., his personal assistant) also received any overtime money.

I said this over a year ago: If it looks like a snake and slithers like a snake, it is a snake.

Good luck to McCoy in his quest to become a U.S. senator. McCoy and Richard Blumenthal would make quite a pair.
