Lou Covostos’ first introduction to local politics may have been partisan-led, but that has not been his experience in the years since. Covostos was appointed to the Liberty Grove Town Board after his predecessor stepped down due his disappointment that his area had voted to re-elect then President Barack Obama to a second term. In the years since, the former law professor and firm administrator has enjoyed working with his fellow supervisors, constituents, and town staff. Even as the national and state debate grows more partisan, Covostos believes that is not the case locally.
Having been re-elected in the years since his appointment, Covostos is proud the town of Liberty Grove will be debt free in 2018 for the first time in several years and that local community groups are stepping up to make the area a more beautiful place.
