An error of fact was reported in the story, "Ferndale Mayor to Run Unopposed Again," on Aug. 10 regarding Craig Covey's career. BTL reported the following:

"Covey had crafted his career contrary to Coulter's. He was elected to the Ferndale City Council on his second try and ran for mayor in 2007. In 2009, he won re-election before stepping down to run for the Oakland County Commission in 2010. But that bid was unsuccessful and Covey wanted to sit behind the mayor's desk once more."

Here is the correction:

"Covey ran for Oakland County Commission in 2010 and won the primary in a three-way race, then went on to win in the general election. He served one term but was then gerrymandered out of his seat along with four other Democrats. He ran and lost in the 2012 primary. He then ran for sheriff in 2016 and lost, but garnered 259,000 votes."
