Last month, the former COVO director, Allison Perry quit.

 

One bone of contention centered around thE head of the COVO Board living in a home for low income veterans.

 

Linda Heatley underwent surgery on her knee after falling on the ice and is living with her niece and her Marine hsuband in COVO housing.

 

Perry didn't think it was right and neither did some board members who quit over it.

 

Board President Linda Heatley told KBND's Kelly Bleyer the truth is more complicated.

 

"There's a lot of things that happened, and I'm not at liberty to say because I don't have the authority of the board to do that, but it wasn't just that.  Let's say irreconcilable differences."

 

Heatley says they would like to hire a veteran to run COVO -- someone who knows first hand waht the veterans are going through.
