The group of volunteers, city officials and state officials gathered early last Thursday morning, Jan. 28, to make the first official count of the homeless in Chelsea. Sgt. Jose Otero speaks to “Bobby” who was hesitant to come out of his sleeping blankets and speak to the group. “Bobby” said he was a Chelsea resident who lost his house. Medics were called in but Bobby refused medical care, stating he did not want to have to walk back to Chelsea from Everett when he would be released.
