Calls from inside and outside the Courthouse demand George Halcovage immediately resign as Schuylkill County Commissioner.

Halcovage recently learned an internal County investigation found it “apparent” that he violated 3 workplace policies, including infractions involving sexual harassment, verbal and physical abuse, and disciplinary action violations.

However, Halcovage denies the accusations. He’s hired a lawyer and says he’ll defend himself and his reputation in court, if he must.

Should George Halcovage Resign as Schuylkill County Commissioner?

The last time Schuylkill County Commissioners got together in public, Halcovage stepped aside from his role as Commissioners Chairman so as not to get in the way of the County’s normal business.

But that didn’t stop his fellow Commissioner Gary Hess from reiterating his suggestion that Halcovage resign instead. And Clerk of Courts Maria Casey also says Halcovage should step down.

Outside the Courthouse, the Schuylkill County Republican Committee addressed Halcovage in a July 1 letter saying he should resign as Commissioner and as RNC Delegate.

Halcovage has 3 options:

  • He can resign,
  • Or he can be impeached,
  • But he can also fight the allegations.
