Laid off Springfield officers get jobs in Chicopee
November 26, 2003
(Chicopee-AP) -- Eleven laid-off Springfield police officers now have jobs in the neighboring city of Chicopee.
Mayor Richard Kos says his city is proud to be able to offer employment to the experienced officers.
The eleven were among 75 Springfield police officers laid off in February following state aid cuts.
Officers who took the oath yesterday at Chicopee City Hall include: Christopher Donoghue, Norberto Diaz, Michael Warren, Juan Hernandez, Stephen Fopp, Jeffrey Martucci, Genevieve Villalobos, Richard Maynard, Natalie Wilson, Michael Govoni, and Peter Payson.
Thanks for the info. I heard it from a person in Grafton who is pretty high up, but I figured I could get better info in hear from you guys. I hope its not true myself because as it is it's going to hard enough to get on, and if 40 more are layed off the guys on the new list can forget about getting hired this round. Hope its not true.
