Mark Kovel Sr., '71Mark Kovel, '71, has released his first book, Freefare: Welcome to the Age of Entitlement.

Released on Jan. 12, 2016, the book examines the presidencies of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Barack H . Obama and the progressive reforms initiated by each. But the book is a call to action, too, and Kovel writes that "even with all that's been accomplished, there's still a final step we must take to ensure that we achieve enlightenment: We must institute freefare, which would eliminate hunger, suffering, and racial disparities." The idea of freefare, he writes, is the "next logical step toward a totally class neutral society."

Kovel earned a degree in history and political science while at JCC. A part-time job int he mailroom at Jamestown Mutual Insurance piqued his interest in business and he took some business courses, too. When Jamestown Mutual Insurance was acquired by another company, his part-time job led to a 41-year career in the insurance industry. He completed coursework at the University at Buffalo and holds certificates in general insurance and risk management. He is also designated as a chartered property and casualty underwriter and is licensed in New York as a life insurance and as a property and casualty insurance broker.

Freefare: Welcome to the Age of Entitlement is available on Amazon and iUniverse.
